... out. Now I'm stuck in this sort of purgatory where the oral surgeon and the neurologist never get in touch with each other and I'm left in limbo waiting for an MRI and a diagnosis that never happens. I DID have a head CT half a year ago with no significant result other than paranasal sinuses being somewhat congested. ... (0 replies)
Fed up with TMJ!

... Hey, thanks for the reply. Yeah I had to do that too where they put some type of gauge in my mouth or something where I had to keep it open. I just don't know what to do anymore though. If it came back normal for me I have no idea what the exact problem is. It always feels like whatever it is goes back into position in a very weak way than it always just pops out of place...

... Hi, all i know was it was an MRI. I had to hold my mouth open at several stages so they could put like an animation together of my mouth opening and closing. My ears do get burning hot but my main issue is pain in the joint and tight muscles in my neck and shoulders causing pain also. My vision goes all blurry and i get ear fullness causing tinitus sometimes. It is a crazy... (3 replies)
... Hey, I know this doesn't help your questions but I had a question about what type of MRI you had done? ... (3 replies)
... ooking for any information regarding my wonky TMJ. I m 37 and have had pain and discomfort for years. After having a complete rant at my doctor I was sent for an MRI to see what was going on as I was getting nowhere with the useless bite guard they were adamant would work! ... (3 replies)
... My tmj specialist only treats tmj patients and has been treating for over 30 years. X rays show that I have very little joint space in both sides, but no arthritis... ... (1 replies)
... Oh my goodness girl! I feel for you so much. I'm sorry you had to go through that. I understand the desperation, the feeling of constantly racing through ideas and 'what if's". That's interesting that you're on anticonvulsants because I was prescribed topamax but for me it didn't seem to work, but I also may not have given it enough time to work. Every once in a while the... (4 replies)
... I'm now on anticonvulsants for nerve pain, muscle relaxants and 2 lots of tryciclic antidepressants. I'm seeing the maxillo facial surgeon again at the April for MRI results. I'm desperately hoping they find the cause because im on the verge of losing my job from having so much time off due to pain. ... (4 replies)
... how to fix it at this rate. I'm at a loss. Some days I just don't even want to be alive anymore due to having to deal with this issue. I always thought it was a TMJ issue but I seriously have no idea anymore. ... (0 replies)
... Hi- If you're having issues with your neck muscles on the same side as the jaw tightness, then maybe your neck is the culprit. The jaw and neck muscles work together so when one system is out of whack it effects the other. You could try and work with a PT to help strengthen/stretch your neck muscles. Have you ever had a neck injury? There are many medications that work... (7 replies)
... allowed me to get a brain MRI done to rule out anything really serious. It came back completely normal so since then I've been completely clueless as in what to do. ... (7 replies)
... No matter what I do it just doesn't seem that whatever this is is going away. I literally have no clue what to do now or if it's even a specific TMJ problem or something else. It just feels like the muscles on my right side never are right. ... (7 replies)
... Hi Jitterbug, It sounds like you have been through the ringer with this disease. I am so so sorry for your pain and discomfort. I currently do not have symptoms as severe as yours. If the surgery irritated the cranial nerve system... it may be possible that over time the nerve could heal. Have you ever tried a pain gel before- i believe there are some that aim to relieve...

... wondering if anyone has advice on how to handle the test while moving as little as possible. I am not claustrophobic so I am not concerned about that. The last TMJ MRI I had was a few years ago. One of the joints was not viewed that clearly because I would move a little when I was swallowing. ... (3 replies)
