... Potentially - you should see a specialist and get an MRI of your TMJ joint - if you clench or grind you should also be wearing a night gaurd - it doesn't prevent clenching or grinding but takes some of the impact off your teeth and jaw. (3 replies)

... Sorry to hear what you've been through. First have you had an MRI and CT Scan of your jaw? I don't know where you are but you could check the "great doctors" thread to see if there is any doctor near you that people here have favourably commented. With respect to your posture at the computer - that is very important and I know that it aggravates my TMJ. Are you... (3 replies)

... tumbled across this board and decided to register and say hey. Maybe I can help someone out with their struggle, maybe one of you can help me. I've been fighting TMJ issues for five years now, although I think I had it less severely for a number of years before that. ... (3 replies)
... I think you need to understand what is the cause of your TMJ problems. For me I i have displaced discs and a bony growth on my right condyle of TMJ joint and so I can't open, and when I try I end up straining my neck muscles to compensate. ... (19 replies)
... So, my TMD seems to be presenting in an unusual way. Rather than getting earaches or migraine symptoms, I'm mostly having trouble with my throat, neck, and nose. For the longest time people were telling me it was sinusitis. I even went on Cipro for 4 weeks. Anyway, the thing is that my throat doesn't just hurt, it kills. It'll start up stinging and within an hour or two it'll... (19 replies)

... ad. Daily my face just feels miserable and I get pain in my ears at least five times a day. The spasms were decreased some mainly because I had botox done in my tmj muscles. Just recently though I am barely able to open my mouth and when I do I am in tears. ... (12 replies)

... ements and take them every day. There are days I am in such pain I do not want to do anything. I take ibuprofen, use ice packs or moist heat. I never heard of TMJ until it happened to me. People see me and say I don't look sick, but they have no idea. ... (12 replies)
... If you try the flexeril in higher dosage up to the maximum dosage as stated in the package insert, you'll know how much it relaxes your muscles. If you got great relief by the flexeril, you could try tolperison instead - it may help then, too. I had been using tolperison during the day and had no feeling of tiredness. I've made the same experiences with some of my... (19 replies)
... I don't take much during the day because of my job. I would love to take it during the day but I have to be alert enough for work. Usually at work I take the ibuprofen 600mg which gives me enough relief during the day to finish work. As soon as I get home though I usually take on flexril then. ... (19 replies)
... Tmjfighter, You have been through a lot. TMD is definitely a lifelong battle. For meds, I am down to occasional muscle relaxers and ibuprofen. MUCH better than before surgery. My opening is about 2 fingers most days but before surgery I was about 4. It was fun to hear about your family. I was a sped teacher for 13 years and now 4th grade. My kids are 12 and 16. ...

... es medication I do try to stay away from for the most part. I do take a medicine called Baclofen which is some sort of muscle relaxer, Paxil for anxiety attacks, Ibuprofen a couple times a day, and Excederin every now and then. I am mostly an addict of opiates and uppers.. ... (17 replies)
... Splints and rolfing are definitely things to try out before resorting to surgery. In terms of myofacial pain, in the 7 years that I've had it and after going through Ibuprofen, Tylenol, Excedrin, various muscle relaxors, and even antidepressants, the thing that amazingly works for me is Tiger Balm. I usually get headaches in the afternoon and evening, and I perpetually smell... (7 replies)
... mashed potatoes or cottage cheese, shakes stuff like that and i think i have felt better in the past 5 days.. slowly. but i am also taking the ibuprofen 3x a day still regardless. ... (3 replies)
... My prediction is you will be given another splint. I don't think your night guard is changing your bite based on how you describe it. It is just protecting your teeth and joints. Depending on what they find, they may think you will need a repositioning splint, and that WILL change your bite. But it may also make you feel better. It's a trade off. (3 replies)
