Re: tmj and eyes bothering me

I had the floaters in the eyes at one point and what I called "shooting stars" - a floater that seemd to leave a tail or stream as it passed by. And now my right eyes tears quite often - especially in cold weather - but it did so during the summer too. Most of these symptoms I feel may be related to compression or inflamation around the optic nerve and temporalis area. As the splints change the bite and subsequently the postion of the jaw many of the cranial sutures and facial bones get realigned and as a result symptoms like this may apear - generally they disappear over time as the body adapts to the changes that occurred.
