TMJ is hard but there is hope.
When I first got diagnosed with TMJ, I thought that there was no hope. TMJ took my life literally...everyday I was in some form of pain. Headaches, ear aches, ear ringing, jaw pain, clicking in the jaw, etc..And of course there was the anxiety and depression that often follows chronic pain. I AM IN A BETTER PLACE TODAY. I sought treatment with a tmj specialists in my city and since then things have only improved. I was fitted with a 24/7 repositioning splint, started treatment with a physical therapists, began to follow a strict healthy diet and exercise program. The pain is gone. I have a few more months in treatment and I can say my doctor saved my life. If you have TMJ, get it treated ASP. If you have to sell something to pay for it then do it. You are nothing without your health. Period. Wish you well.
