Re: Arthroscopy procedure PLEASE HELP!

hi Laura,
THANKS for your reply
I have tried massage and am doing cold laser-also have tried acupuncture and tried to do small front splint and did not work, I did not tolerate meds for other splint and went to UnivDDs/TMJ for help and spent the last month trying their relax therapy which did not work-so I went to this DDD/TMJ and I don't know if procedure is the right thing, but I feel that my jaw is trying to close up completely and that I have very little time
I am not sure I have time for another consultation before that happens and I need to go back to work or I will lose my job and my health benefits- I am in a bad spot! I know my discs are displaced and that my jaw has become so much worse over time. I am VERY scared-what can anyone do when your jaw is closed? I need to be able to talk! My job requires a lot of talking!
Thanks for your reply! and encouragement.
please give more thoughts
Yogi
