Re: cause of pain starting in the jaw and radiating down the neck?
On my TMD trip I had a phase where the pain radiated down my neck into my shoulder. I even got a tingling sensation in my hands and I had no idea what was going on in my body until I got the diagnosis and learnt that its all about hyperactive jaw muscles and referred pain.
I'm wearing a splint now, no pain going down my neck, no tingling. no twitching below my eye, pain concentrated around the jaw joint area.
Tomorrow I have an adjustment and I'm am going to ask him if shifting the jaw position is like when you get new shoes that can pinch a little until you wear them in.
