I just got a splint to bring my bottom jaw forward. I have been wearing it for just over a week 24/7, and now I am starting to get neck, shoulder, and back pain. I am also noticing that I am grinding down the "speed bumps" on the splint, so my jaw is not exactly staying put. I woke up last night to find my jaw way out of the proper position. Has anyone else had this trouble?
I intend to go back to the orthodontist, however I think he leaves for a 2 week vacation tomorrow....perfect timing of course. I wonder if this splint, in its current condition, is hurting me more than helping me.
Any advice or support would be appreciated
