Re: Doc says "not TMJ"
I've been to 3 doctors all telling me different things. 1 doctor told me stress, another doctor told me anxiety, another doctor told me to get more rest etc... Then finally I went to a qualified doctor and he did x-rays, he saw that I had some scar tissue in my bone, near my joint. This is what was cauing me to have TMJ-like symptoms. The moral of the story is, if 1 doctor has told you it isn't TMJ, don't worry and don't be convinced. To me this sounds like TMJ, I don't have contant pain either, actually I almost never get pain, its mostly annoying pain. So now that I know it's this, I will see more qualified people to see what I can do for the problem. Please find some doctors in your area that are qualified to treat this. Maybe speak to a good dentist about. TMJ is VERY often mis-diagnosed so don't worry. Please let us know what happens! Take care.
