Re: TMJ and tens units
Hi Liz, I have been seeing a nm dentist and he uses the tens on my jaw joints and lower neck. It gives me a worse headache that day, but the day after my headache, jaw, and neck pain is a little better. I have 5 bulging discs in my neck but have not had surgery. I also use mobic for pain zanaflex for spasms and that is my saving grace. I have a tens unit for home use and put it on a low setting and it helps, the dentist puts it up high and then adjusts my splint about 1 hour later. I hope you feel better soon. Living with a horrible headache is no fun and stops you in your tracks. Good luck to you.
