Frequently Asked Questions
Question: I’ve heard that sleep apnea can end up causing headaches sometimes, is this possible? Should I find out if I have it?
Answer: It’s absolutely possible that this issue can lead to headaches. Why, you wonder? Well, when you stop breathing for moments at a time during sleep, you deprive your brain of oxygen. The result is headaches often in the morning, in addition to a slew of other symptoms. Seeking a diagnosis is a good plan.
Question: How about TMJ disorder? Could that cause problems with headaches?
Answer: Of course. Your jaw joints may be strained, damaged, and working improperly with TMD. The discomfort in your jaw joints can radiate, leading to headaches. We can treat this oral health problem!
Question: I know bruxism disorder is closely related to TMJ disorder but is this another potential culprit? A friend mentioned headaches and other symptoms might occur as a result.
Answer: While TMD and bruxism are often closely linked, headaches may come from this oral health issue because pressure from either grinding or clenching may result in pain (which may also radiate) and cause headaches.
