Re: How long do your TMJ flare ups last?
The symptoms from tmj can be endless! I have ear pain, eye pain, severe headaches that have put me in bed for days at a time, nausea, dizziness, muscle spasms in face, head, neck, shoulders, upper back, numbness in nose and top lip, on and on......For pain right now, my dentist has me on Vicodin for pain and Skelaxin for muscle spasms. The meds have helped tremendously. He is the first dentist though to take this seriously enough to give me medication to help. I haven't ever had the salivary lump under my chin be inflammed, but I did have the one in one of my cheeks swell up like a walnut from tmj! UGH.......keep us posted
