LOCK JAW PROBLEM
Hi all. I read about a remedy in a natural health book for lock jaw and I tried it. It indicated that Vitamin C should be taken in high doses, along with some Pantothentic Acid. Interestingly, I hadn't been able to open my mouth or chew for two days (starting this week) and after reading that, I took 2000 mg of Vitamin C and 5 mg of Pantothentic Acid. Within 2 hours, I was able to open my mouth without pain. It hasn't completely gone away, but I think it really helped and is worth a try. Also, from personal experience, I have found that my jaw locks up if my shoulders are tense. In fact, after going to get a massage, my jaw becomes completely loose. Hope this helps! Remember, there is a reason for everything, and there is usually a natural remedy. The book I use is called "Let's Get Well" by Adelle Davis. It's an oldy but a goody.
