Should I get a second opinion, and what should I be looking for? Please.
I went to a TMJ specialist today. He reviewed my symptoms, looked at my cone beam CT scan, and noted some erosion on my TMJ, which he found surprising given my age (no more than 25). He recommended a repositioning splint ($1000), took imprints, an MRI and off I went. He suggests a PT, massages, etc. He sent me home with papers on home care (posture, eating softer foods, some exercises)
Should I be seeking a second opinion? and if so, ANY recommendations for a TMJ in way southern Fl? Should there have been more to the diagnosis? I keep reading about TENS, and other machines. I've been miserable this past month since I found out I may have TMJD, and am at my wits end. I am terrified of dishing out money (that I don't really even have).
