I'm still not sure if my pain and headaches and dizziness are from my inner ear (vestibular infection I had in May) or from TMJ. All I get told is "Dunno, you are too anxious". Well DOH, anyone with the pain I've got would be anxious too.
However, what I have done which has helped me with my pain (all in that muscle on the scalp and behind the ear and down my neck and into my
professional remedial massage
Atsragalus Forte (liquid)
Vasalvar manouvre and others for my e-tubes which are constantly blocked or closed.
and just yesterday I started using Nurofen Migraine twice a day (sick of being a martyr with pain I'm gonna do drugs whenever I need to now) and Difflam extra strength gel (benzydamine hydrochloride 5%) on the muscles of my jaw, behind my ear and on the scalp where it hurts. Could all just be placebo effect but it's better than doing nothing. I've also worn my magnetic back support night and day (probably does nothing but I'm trying everything I've got) and pushed my chin in whenever I feel it sticking out like a goose neck. I'm also making myself very aware of clenching during the day. Oh wearing my glasses all day too.
I have emailed every single dentist within 300 km of me who uses the NTI-tss and have had *one* reply and this guy wants me to travel another 500kms to get an orthotic "placed" whatever that means. All I want is *one* little standard NTI-tss to *try* and do you think I can get one - NOPE! (I'm in Canberra Australia) if anyone can help me with that one I'll kiss you
