Hi, I am new to TMJ too. My pain was mainly in my teeth, all over, not just one tooth. The pain went away, when I took a muscle relaxant. Though, I wonder what happens when I stop taking them. I have heard that TMJ can go through periods of having it and not having it. Sorry, I am not much help!!

I was wondering if TMJ Disorder will decrease over time. I've heard from some people that their pain went away over time and from other people that it was permanent.
