common for symptoms to go on your good side

Re: common for symptoms to go on your good side

I know that my pain was mainly on my right side for years. Just within the last year has it gone to my left side. I think this is common. I know I tend to over compensate for my right side on my left, which in the long run made it just as bad as my right.

Take care

Kelly

Re: common for symptoms to go on your good side

Miss L- I have upper dentures and lower partials. I have ear pain and humming(which is from muscle spasms, and joint area discomfort. My neck also crackles and is stiff. Are you seeing a TMJ dentist or specialist? It is so scary the way the pain travels - Gee, one never knows what to expect from one day to the next it seems.

Miss L- I guess were a lot alike to them. They said my x-rays look fine but its hard to believe its all muscular. I have been having this for a little over 3 months now. It sure gets old. Good luck with all your oral work. Hope it isn't too painful.

Re: common for symptoms to go on your good side

Hi again ive been suffering nearly a year now it took 4 doctors lots of antibiotics nasal sprays ect before one doc said it could be TMJ, are you in the uk? i dont know if its right or not but have been told you need an MRI of the joint to know for sure? what do you think? it is hard to belive such a small joint can cause so many problems and such pain

Re: common for symptoms to go on your good side

Miss L
I live in the US. Sounds like your seeing someone that knows what to do. My TMJ dentist looked at my X-rays and said you can't tell much from them either. He has not
mentioned me having a MRI yet. He is a bioesthetic dentist, I just started seeing him a couple weeks ago. I have seen a little improvement, different every day. I am having a cervical MRI done Fri as I have a lot of neck pain, just to rule anything abnormal there.
Before I spend a fortune on TMJ treatments I want to know that indeed that is whats
causing all my problems. I did go through PT under my other dentist- but that had no
lasting effect(didn't really help). Sometimes I thing I should pay for a MRI of the joint but I hate to waste my money as my new dentist thinks its all muscular too, and pretty much said the treatment is the same, have to find the right jaw joint relationship where the muscles are happy and the teeth fit properly- I just hope that doesn't take too long.
