HI--are you wearing any sort of guard or splint? What type of surgery did you have? also, an osteopath or cranial sacral therapist may be able to help realign the cranial bones if that's an issue, (it usually is with tmd patients)..have you tried that yet? It's a very subtle therapy, and usually gives you results after a couple of weeks. I've recently read parts of a John Upledger book on a man who had ringing and severe pain in his ears, and after 10hrs, approximately a mo. of cranial therapy his symptoms subsided, and he didn't even need medication anymore. I thought it was quite impressive. If you go that route, try to find someone who has practiced for at least 10yrs, and has a lot of experience in treating tmjd. Some CST's are definitely better than others. Good luck!----J.
