... There is a book called 'Taking Control of TMJ' by Uppgaard, and a book by Cynthia Peterson. They helped me so much. The first book has exercises you can do as well.

... LittleLeaf - This is a shot in the dark since I know this post is very old, but did you ever find out what was wrong? I'm going through something pretty much exactly the same!

... Hi. Well, I just got back from allergy testing a little while ago & it turns out I have no allergies whatsoever. So they said I have non rhinitis allergy symptoms where I'm getting a bunch of symptoms that are like I have allergies but am not allergic to anything.
