Smile HUH?

Okay, most of you know that I have been struggling with receptionist, specialist, and getting tests done. Well, my tests are not back yet, but my pt called my specialist that has decided to end being my specialist-whatever. Anyways there is another specialist that my pt has been trying to get me to go see. She has a good relationship with this guy. (he is a little far). Anyways, this guy has not seen me yet, but believes that there is something else that could be wrong with me. He does not know for sure because he has not seen me, but mentioned that the least it could be is draining out my joint.
My question is what does that include? Is this procedure painful? Would I be awake? Does it mean that my jaw won't lock up anymore?
I realize that we do not know for sure if this is my case, but I would love soem information about it, so I won't freak out (unless I have too.)
thanks
Heather
