Aching Cheeks After Smiling Or Laughing?
Tonight, I want to ask. If the aches on your cheeks after smiling or laughing (why don’t you laugh) why is that? But the jaw bone and teeth do not hurt, only the cheeks are like aches and pains. Why is that? Just recently, it feels sore to smile or laugh. Are there any disorders such as trauma to the facial joint?
Good evening Putri, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
When smiling or laughing, there are some facial muscles that move (contract). Just like the muscles in other parts of the body, this muscle can experience fatigue if used repeatedly and for a long period of time, so that when you smile or laugh many times and in a long time, this muscle will make the same movements over and over and it is very possible to experience fatigue that causes a feeling of pain afterwards.
Complaints will feel different if there is trauma or disturbance in the facial joints, where the joints that can be moved on the face are only one ie the joints between the upper jaw and the lower jaw that allows for the lower jaw to move up or down. In the event of trauma or abnormalities, the complaints that can occur in the form of difficulty opening / closing the mouth or lower back shape that appears to shift from where it should be.
I hope this helps.
