WOW, you got lucky, a Dr. that knew what it was and gave you med's to help on your first visit!
Most MD's don't even think about TMJ neverless diagnose it, they just aren't educated enough about it I guess. Ask people around you who they would recommend you see. ( Dentist, Oral surgon etc) You'd be surprised at how many people have this.I found a good one that way but have to wait for my insurance to kick in before I can see him. Good luck
