Hi there yes that was the first reason i got so upset with all this pain i clench my teeth that bad a night my left side cheek was in a right mess i thought i had cancer and my doctor sent me to the dental hospital and this big white thing on my cheek sits perfectly between my teeth and its some size
thanks miss l for mentioning the white thing on cheek. my dentist recently found one on my right cheek.
i have had arthritic tmj for 30yrs and it got bad last yr after 2 surgeries not related to tmj. i found magnetic pillow pads help tremendously and i wear a magnetic wrist band too. i take advil and ice pack to reduce swelling and heat rub for muscle pain.
does anyone experience a sensation theres something in your throat when your jaw is inflamed?
hi there yes but i also have GERD and its a symptom of that also, my symptoms are
right sided jaw clicking crunching
right side ear feels full
left sided stiff jaw
left side tight neck muscles
left side sharp ear pains
left sided throat pain
left side burning feeling around the gum and tongue sometimes in the glands under my chin
left sided tooth pain and nasal pain
right sided cluster headaches
i have most of the same symptom you have miss L, but also have facial/tight muscles due to spastic cerebral which doesn't help tmj. Sharp pains in hard, dizziness when it worsens. neck pain. Mine is mostly the right jaw. My jaw goes to the left.
Has anyone noticed when the humidity is up their tmj worsens?
