Yes, I have problems with my jaw too. It started on one side and then about 5 months later the other side started. Lucky for me usually only one side hurt at a time. Also it comes and goes. Lately I have been able to eat pretty good, but a few months ago, I didn't even feel like eating at all because it was so painful.
I have to say I seem to be able to handle the pain in my hands and wrists, but jaw, well how can you not talk or eat? This is the one area that concerns me.
If you find any info let me know and I will do the same. I always wondered a few years down the road if it got worse, what options existed for me, maybe surgery?
Anyway sometimes it bothers me enough that my teeth hurt too, but after checkups and xrays my teeth are fine.
Sorry I don't have anything positive to add, but I do know what you are going through.
