Slipped Disk, what has helped you?
Well now it looks like my disk is either all the way slipped or part of the way. I saw a specialist today (DDS,MSD,MS) and that was her guess..we did take an x-ray but not an MRI. She said we'd treat it the same so lets see if it gets better before we spend the money. I just started splint therapy last week and she's having me do gentle exercises and ice packs. ( I can't open my mouth fully)She said that if the disk is slipped/gone, generally scar tissue builds up and acts as the cushion. She also said that it could/would take months and gave me pain killers and anti inflamitory drugs. I see her again in two weeks. What has worked for you and how much time did it take? Many Thanks.
