jaw pain 3 years post thyroid cancer

I had thyroid cancer 3 years ago and had a total thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine treatment.  I had a large cancerous tumor growing off my pancreas last summer and had surgery/treatment for that.  For the last three weeks, I've gotten severe headaches and incredible jaw pain on both sides.  I haven't had headaches like this since before my thyroid was taken out.  Has anyone had any experience with this?

    check with doctor

    I haven't experienced that myself but it definitely sounds like something you should get checked out with your GP or endocrinologist. May not even have anything to do with the thyroid cancer but best to get seen by a doctor to be sure - and no need to suffer either. Best to you.
