OK.

A blood test is fool proof.

Actually new kits are as well, but a blood test will not make a mistake.

There are many reasons you can be delayed a day, including infection.

Temporal mandibular joint syndrome. A form of arthritis in the jaw.

Early trigeminal neuralgia: this is a nerve problem and can become extremely painful. Often a surgical procedure , minor, can relieve it.

The beginning of bells palsy, which can leave the fact paralized on one side.

I would see the neurologist asap.

Let me know if you have more questions.
