Yes, I have done the 4 week, 2 week & 1 week pack(s) of the roids. I did see a great reduction in my swelling, discomfort and pain. The pain did not go away 100% , but it was reduced. I asked my DX why could I not just live with the roid pack and got a loooooooog lecture over the damage long time/every day use of the roids could and would cause. Sad thing is once you get off of them the TMJ is still there.
But for someone is pain with excessive swelling, I think the roid pack is great to get control of the swelling & pain. Hope you find answers!
