Cfs & Tmj?
I have been diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome and TMJ, my doctor said they are connected. Anyone else?
My life is a mess!
I had a misalignment on my left side, with face pain and numbness (still do). For 2 years I worn a hard upper acrylic type splint pretty much 24/7. Plus trigger-point injections and a arthrocentesis procedure. Still HORRIBLE headaches and face pain, I don't get much jaw pain just cheek and head.
I finally saw a neurologist. He found nothing!
All that money spend on a tmj specialist plus other doctors and still no relief, so I went to another TMJ doctor and he made me a soft night guard for my bottom teeth. Now 6 months later still not much relief. Sometime I can go weeks without much pain them bam hit again!
Now I am seeing a pain management doctor! What a cycle> plus I need dental work but my jaw is so lock up my dentist can't get into my mouth! I had a cleaning last week and my jaw is still shaking!
I did have one filling in the front, my dentist used some kind of mouth piece I could bite down on to rest my jaw.
Not even sure what I am asking, been through so many treatments, just wondering if anyone can relate?
