Hi bjhk,

I find that if I sleep on my right side, which is the AN side, I wake up with a very sore face. My AN ear, behind the ear and my jaw hurt. I try to sleep on either my back or my left side which always helps. Usually during the night, I have a tendency to roll over on my AN side with a painful result. I am training myself to stay off of my AN side, easier said than done. Additionally, I have trigeminal pain which is also induced by sleeping on my AN side. This is how I am dealing with facial pain. Best of luck.
Mild symptoms on right side July 2014
CK April 16-20, 2018, Barrow Neurological Institute

Hi I had CK three years agao and still cannot sleep on that side. I get ear pain that wakes me up. Its a trigeminal stabbing pain. Sometimes jaw and behind that side eye. I have to only sleep on my other side. I dont have an answer really but have found lemon balm tincture helps me- and I am now looking into other nervine herbs because so far only they have helped - I declined amitryptaline and gabapentin.

My jaw doesn't hurt at night;  only when I am awake or when chewing. That is why I went to the dentist and he said everything dental is ok

This sounds like TMJ.  I’ve started to have this 5 months ago from the side of the AN. Then 2 weeks later moved to the other side, and now I’m wearing the mouth guard and it helps a lot during sleep, but I have to change my sleep position to only on my back, not on the side.  Eating and talking hurts the ear (AN side) and tinnitus is extremely loud now when it acts up.

However, my side of the AN, the TMJ does NOT exhibit clicks of pops or anything but it hurts a lot when I chew and gives me headache. The other side on the contrary would clicks but not much of other issues.

Currently the AN side has been diagnosed as having cholesterol granuloma and I’m scheduled for surgery to remove the fluid.

Hope this helps.
