Headaches after eating are often one symptom of a group of disorders called Temporomandibular (TMD) Disorders. More specifically,Temperomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder.

The nerves in your jaw are acting up and chewing aggravates the condition -- often resulting in headaches after eating.

There are several treatments for TMJ headaches. Dentists are the front line troops in dealing with TMD/TMJ.

Ask you Dentist or Doctor for a referral to someone in your area who specializes in the treatment of TMD/TMJ.
