Re: Glaucoma from TMJ? My Eye hurts
What did the eye dr say about it in terms of what it is, what caused it, what danger it poses, how it is treatment? Maybe you should go see an eye specialist before you totally freak out. I've never heard of a "bucket" behind the eye - like a gap? What's supposed to be there?
About a year before my tmj started I started getting fuzzy vision and blurriness, inability to focus, etc but since I had lasik surgery a few yrs earlier I thought it was related to that - but the dr couldn't find anything wrong. When the tmj spasms started and the eye pain, my dr sent me to a eye specialist - I thought I had glucoma as well, but he said all was fine but did see evidence of cranial pressure - so I am sure its possible. Right now my head shape is really whacked out - I have one ear protruding and further forward than the other - so imagine what such changes can do in terms of affecting your eyes.
I know you're worried - I would be too, but many of us are here for you.
Do you need a laugh - my whole body has become twisted by this horrible condition and today my left hand curled up and then suddenly started to spin as if I was turning a jump rope - although I am kind of used of weird things going on (my eyes squint a lot, mouth pulls left, etc) I was in a bank at the time and got plenty of strange stares. LOL.
Have you ever been to a chiro that specializes in cranial disorders - I am heading to one my tmj dr referred me to in a few weeks.
