I have read the majority of messages here and I don't see any mention of lock jaw - or of it being a severe problem for anyone. I was recently diagnosed with TMJ and my mouth will not open much more than a finger's width. This is a stretch and painful. Really it only opens less than a quarter of an inch. I am taking an anti-inflamitory prescribed by my oral sergeon. He will make a splint for me if this doesn't help. It has been a week and no better. I have had this lock jaw for months. I am very, very depressed over this and am starting to feel a little crazy over it. I also have the ear problems, quite severe pain at times. Can anyone relate?
