Post doctor visit..

Hey all! I just got back from the doctor.. this isn't a tmj specialist.. just my reg doctor. He switched my muscle relaxers to soma which he said should help with sleeping at night. (thanks to all of you who helped me with finding soma!)

I asked for an mri. He suggested a catscan instead. He said that he's concerned about my sinuses and says that this will help show both. Is this correct? Will the catscan show if it's muscle or joint related tmjd problems?

He's keeping me on the nasal steriods. He said that sometimes it takes 4-6 weeks before they will totally clear everything out. I expressed concern for taking the steroids so long but he said that there wasn't anything bad with it. Anyone know of any long term affects with taking steriods?

Anyways.. just thought I'd update everyone. The CT takes place monday. I'll let you know what we find afterwards. I dont have a tmj doctor so I dunno if we will be able to see anything heh.
