protruding jaw from bulimia
I have been bulimic for almost 15 years. I tried to stop many times but I get discouraged because my jaw is protruding and I have sever headache and ears pain so I feel this is the only way I can feel better, I don't know what to do, my face shape became square and I look much older with this protruding large jaw, most of the time I want to take a hammer and hit my face, this how the pain makes me feel, I know I should go to a TMJ doctor, but I would like to know before go and pay money for doctors, I want to know how this can be fixed, surgery? I already put this thing on my lower teeth to keep my upper and lower teeth apart at night to prevent the grinding at night. I am very depressed and tried to commit suicide many times (did not succeed obviously) because of my jaw. I am at age I feel I can beat the bulimia but the consequences from it is holding me back, gosh I want to scream, it is not just pain is very very uncomfortable, any one can help.
