Boyle,
I was reading a post of yours....I too have CP and TMJ. How do you feel that your cerebral palsy affects your TMJ? Have you had any surgery done?

Re: boyle, can I ask a ???

oh bless you. maybe you can help me. I have spastic cp and i find that on days when i'm tense the tmj is worse, but i'm learning to relax my jaw when i talk and not to open my mouth so wide to articulate. The weather effects my tmj greatly so i now have a dehumidifier and that helps.

Re: boyle, can I ask a ???

Boyle,

Do you have it on both sides. My CP originated from being born, somehow. And, the technical term for my diagnosis was left spastic hemiplegia....only my left side.

I have questioned for years how it affected my jaw. When I was a teen, I had 12 surgeries on my TMJ. The last one worked, thank God. The others, well there was a strange pattern. 6 weeks to the date of each surgery, I would just lock down. Poof.
(of course, a wonderful screw, reindoctrinated me into the world of TMJ last year)
My left side is weaker than the right...my entire body. I've been to neurologists with this...No one's been able to decipher just what effects my weakness has had on it.

I've never had a seizure, though the potential lingers around me. So, I just do not know what to make of it.

What type of relaxation techniques do you use?

Cool Re: boyle, can I ask a ???

i meditate to relax.
my cp is on both side. Fortunately, the tmj is managable w/o surgery. i use a magnetic pillow pad, wear a magnetic bracelet, use analgesic cream to relax the jaw muscles and advil for swelling. I have arthritic tmj.

yes, magnetic pad or bracelets lessens the symptoms for me. I use Watkins Analgesic Balm.
