I was recently diagnosed with sjogrens diease and the side of my face is so sore that it keeps me awake all nite; my parotiod gland is always infected.t hey talked about surgury but said it was a high risk and i have researched it and could leave me looking really bad. i keep wondering if some of this could be casued from tmj as my jaw really hurts all the time.
Well if it is Tmj pain there are some things you can do to relieve the pain. You can massage the muscles behind your Molars. Ice Packs help. Also It Helps to change your sleeping position if you sleep on your stomach or side. Sleeping on your back is best because it takes the pressure of your jaw. Arnica cream is good too. I hope you feel better soon.
