For me my disc was out of place. Best thing to do to decrease the pain is to take motrin. Also for ear pain, the motrin should help, if not put a warm cloth over your ears. Dizziness is only from your ear being in pain, its causeing your equilibrium to be off balance. Try your best to not eat any steak, pork and anything like that. Before i had my surgery i only ate chicken. Look up "Tmj Arthroplasty surgery" . And contact your oral surgeon asap. The pain does get worse if it isnt treated in the right way.
Hello, I haven't taken any injections. When I went to the doctor all she gave me was anti-vertigo pills and told me to go to my dentist for the problem. A couple days after that I went to my dentist who told me that it had nothing to do with my teeth and that I should go back to the doctor. Feeling like I was going to get in the middle of a doctor war I decided to not go back. So I'm toughing it out
