Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
When you open your jaw big enough, for example when you laugh out loud or when yawning, the muscles around the jaw and also the head will contract quite badly. In some sensitive people, this muscle contraction can trigger headaches that are mild and temporary. If this pain appears with a reasonable intensity, not continuous, and also not accompanied by other complaints, such as jaw stiffness, swelling, jaw sounds, and so on, then you don't need to worry. You can resolve your complaint with the following steps:
As much as possible, avoid over-opening the jaw
Compress the painful jaw area with a warm compress
Don't over-massage the painful jaw
Get used to chew food in a balanced way on the right and left
However, if you feel the pain continues to recur despite having consistently done the steps above, it would not hurt you to check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist. It is feared, there are certain diseases that underlie your complaints, for example dislocation of the jaw joints, skin infections around the head and jaw, nerve clamps, tooth and mouth disorders, migraines, trigeminal neuralgia, cluster head pain, and so on. The various conditions above can certainly require different handling. Therefore, appropriate diagnostic steps are important, not only through interviews and regular physical examinations, but also involve radiological examinations, such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRIs, if needed.
Hope this helps ...
