Can anyone give me explanations of what's going on with my jaw? Over the last couple of years my upper left jaw--between my cheeckbone and my ear--has been jamming into my ear area--now it's gotten to the point that my bite is off and I wake up with excruciating pain around my ear. My lower left jaw is way over developed compared to my right, and the bone behind my left upper molars is trying to break thru the gums--and I already had the wisdom tooth out.
My dentist doesn't know %&$, and the $400 niteguard he ordered for me just accentuates the mishapen left bite. I now can no longer wear it because of the pain. The nearest oral surgeon on my insurance is 4 hours away. I went to the neurologist and they took 17 films of my jaw but I have heard nothing from them. I feel like the left side of my face is growing and the right side is notrmal. My ear is getting bigger too. The docs just look at me like I'm crazy. I am in severe pain. I need some suggestions! Help!
