I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem or has noticed this.
I played clarinet for about 12 years from elementary school to college, and then one year I decided to give it a rest and focus on some other goals in life I had. I had my wisdom teeth removed a few months after the last time I played, and 7 years later I decided to take up music again. I started with a completely new instrument - flute - because I couldn't find my old clarinet, and have gotten quite good at it in a short amount of time but I wanted to play clarinet again and recently bought a used one. I've almost completely forgotten how to play it and have to start on very thin reeds, etc.
The problem: Whenever I play I feel a pressure in my jaw where I had my wisdom teeth removed about 7 years ago! It isn't extremely painful or anything but it concerns me so I try not to practice too much. If I do push myself and really practice hard, I feel a sort of fuzzy stuffy stiffness there for a couple hours afterwards. I've had all four wisdom teeth removed.
