Will TMJ Soreness subside?

Hey,

This morning, I went to the doctor telling him about some slight jaw clicking and some jaw soreness. He told me that it was due to TMJ Disorder, and said that it shouldn't pose any long-term problems. I'm not completely sure, but I believe the soreness may be in part due to the fact that I have been opening my mouth wide a lot to see if the clicking would disappear or if it had gotten worse (bad decision, I nkow)

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.

Thank you!

Re: Will TMJ Soreness subside?

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!!

It's cool. Honestly, it helps just to know that somebody else was able to relieve their pain using muscle relaxants. I'll be visiting a oral surgeon tomorrow and I will probably be getting a splint, so I hope that helps me.

I hope it goes well with the oral surgeon!! Have you tried OTC mouth guards? I know some say they don't help and others (few) have said it helped. I hear that the one the docs make are much better!! Sending good vibes your way!!!
