Question: Pressure around mouth area - what could it be?

GatorDeb - Sun May 30, 2004 1:33 am

For years now I've had pressure around the mouth area that is very uncomfortable. It's hard to describe - a pressure that comes from the inside of my head and it's concentrated in my mouth area. It's very uncomfortable and keeps me up at night. What do you think this could be? Thank you!

I would think in terms of sinus problems, tooth/oral infection, trigeminal neuralgia, migranous Headache, or an inflammation of bone/soft tissue. Have you visited your doctor yet?
