Hurts to open my mouth

I had a head frame placement 2/11/13. At first I thought maybe it was because of the swelling at the pin site. But it has been 2 weeks now and it still hurts to open my mouth very far. Anyone else experienced that? If so how long did it last?

Hi, Melissa, has this symptom improved by now? I hope it has. How are you doing?

It is almost back to normal now. Still hurts a little when I open my mouth really wide like you would have to do if you were getting your teeth cleaned. I am due for my cleaning but I have decided to put it off till I can open my mouth with no discomfort.
