Re: TMJ- How does TMJ affect an Epileptic patient??
I saw your post and wanted to respond, as I have similar stuff going on here. I have TMJ, as confirmed by doctors. I do not get the headaches, but I am on Topamax for my seizures, and that is also prescribed for migraines. What caught my interest is your mention of plugged ears. I can't tell you how many times I've gone to my PCP thinking I have fluid in my ears, only to be told it's clear. Strangely, she has told me it looks like it's bulging a bit, but there's never any fluid. She has mentioned that it's probably related to my TMJ, so I'm thinking that it's a good possiblility that your case just might be also, although it's just a guess. I do find myself clenching alot.
First off, I'd recommend calling your regular doctor and asking if they think the clogged ear thing could be a symptom of TMJ. If so, then I think you should probably call your dentist and ask if he/she makes up those nightguards. If not, perhaps they can recommend an orthodontist who does.
I understand your concerns about the tumor and it is completely understandable. The sooner you address this issue, the better you will feel. Good luck to you.
