Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
It hurts really bad. Inside of my ear and all on the side of my face hurts due to my jaw clenching. Oddly it's mostly on the left side of my face.
From this study (4 days ago):
Pain comes and goes throughout day. Approx 10- 20 episodes a day . I have to lay down and relax in order for it to go away
From this study (6 days ago):
I feel a sort of confusion, slightly not with it, and frequently forget where I put things or why I went into a room etc. I am easily distracted from a train of thought. If I am shown a new process at work, I tend to forget quickly unless I have reinforced it in use for some time. Forget peoples names and the news my friends have told me. I find my thoughts flash from one thing to another if I am relaxing, so I then can't remember what I started with. Lose things frequently, but they do turn up. Can't find names eg plants in the garden even though I know them, but they will come back to me when I am not trying. I am concerned on a professional level because I am a pharmacist with obvious responsibility for safety.
