... I read something on the web - but can't find it again - but it was a study that had been done that suggested injuries to other parts of the body do not really heal - the body will do what it can to mend itself and recover but the injury remains and the central nervous system will push the body's "energy" elsewhere - as the body adapts to the change the redirected force in the...

I thought it might help to know that another possible reason for a cracking/cradkling/popping/clunking joint may be lax ligaments. I for one, have this problem in multiple places (neck,sacroiliac joints, hips, knees, shoulders, jaw). I have a very noisy body - and suffer... (6 replies)
... Hi Laurene... I just noticed your posts...and feel for what you are going through. I found it interesting that this all started when the withdrawel from Klonopin left you with severe head/neck/face spasms.

... Now, he is at that age where he would never hold his mother's hand, so I knew he was having claustrophobic troubles. It was then, looking at my kid in this big clunking machine, scared to death, with this whole contraption over his head and neck to stabilize him, that my heart completely broke. ... (12 replies)

... I know what you mean about the neck muscles. My scm muscle is especially irritable...along with the scalenes etc. I can't figure out whether the neck brings about the tmj symptoms ... or somehow my lumbar problems gave birth to both the tmj stuff and the cervical. ... (8 replies)
... Hi to everyone! I wondered if you would all give your advice on this one. I had my appointment yesterday with a Dentist who has a subspecialization in tmj.
