Sorry to hear about your situation, I know how frustrating it is to go from doctor to doctor. I also have 24/7 chronic muscle tension and spasms around the jaw, temple, head, and neck area, and have also seen more than 20 doctors in the last 18 months.
Sorry I'm unable to answer your questions, but I'm hoping you could share your experience with us, particularly about the orthotic that moved your jaw down and forward. The reason why I'm asking is because this is the current treatment I am doing (I'm about 2 weeks in my orthotic now). So I would really like to hear stories from others who have gone through it before, whether or not the story is successful or unsuccessful.
So my questions (specifically about the orthotic, not the NTI splint) are:
1. Did you go through the TENSing and K7 to make the orthotic?
2. How long did you wear the orthotic for?
3. Did you wear the orthotic 24/7? (Including speaking and eating with it on).
Also, question about posture:
1. Have you checked with any chiropractor to see if you have any postural issues? (e.g atlas/neck misalignments or loss of lordosis, etc).
Again, sorry I couldn't answer your questions. I wish you all the best in finding someone who can help!
