jaw locked...need some support
So my jaw hasn't locked this badly in a long time, but I woke up at 4 this morning and found it locked and I can only open my mouth maybe a centimeter at the most. It's 10:30 now, and I'm definitely freaking out a bit and could really just use some reassurance. For some reason when my jaw locks like this I can feel myself getting an anxiety attack which the the absolute last thing I need to happen right now.
Here is what I've been doing:
took Flexeril (muscle relaxant)
icing it, will start alternating with heat
Also, it is most definitely the right side (it usually is) giving me so much trouble.
is there anything else anybody knows to do? Also, at what point do you think I should call my dr?
