Re: Does TMJ Cause Scalp Tightness?
I don't know what I can say that others haven't (I too think tmj could cause this muscle tightness), but I wanted to offer my sympathy. Looney, I remember you mentioned that hot showers give some temporary relief, could you maybe try some kind of water based therapy on a regular basis? I had a friend with a knee injury who found this kind of therapy helped a lot during the recovery period. I wish we could control our bodies better, I think of my muscles spasming and making things worse and I want to be able to tell them to stop, the body can be so efficient and self healing yet it seems to be able to be inadvertantly self destructive too. I do very much hope you find some relief.
