Post-accident facial pain can be caused by trauma to the muscles or bones in the face. Regarding your question, it needs to be clarified again regarding the mechanism of the accident you experienced, the impact occurred in the head or other body parts and on which side. In addition, even if you did not faint, did you feel unbearable headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures and did you feel pain when you apply pressure on your face?
Post-traumatic head injuries, especially traffic accidents, must be thoroughly evaluated and subject to direct physical examination. This has the potential to cause head injuries of a mild, moderate, and severe nature with the risks varying. Skull fractures or fractures in the flat bones on the face can cause pain when pressed or when the body is moved. The best evaluation is by direct physical examination assisted by supporting examinations using a CT scan or X-ray.
Regarding your complaint, the cause of the pain in the cheek needs to be found. Is there an injury to the muscle or to the flat bone after trauma due to an accident. To help reduce your complaints, you can take pain relievers. If the complaint is getting worse or there is no improvement, it is advisable to do a direct examination with your nearest doctor in order to get the right treatment. I have received so much information, hope it helps
