I have had TMJ, Jaw Pain and Tinnitus for 5 mos. Have been to 3 orthodontists, 2 dentists, and 3 doctors. I'm on my 2nd mouthguard called an NTI. Clenching at night from stress and anxiety is the suspected culprit. Still have pain and tinnitus. Now even talking aggravates the joint. Nothing has changed. Will probably try a third splint which I can wear 24 hours but will be able to talk normally. Is there such a splint and do they work? Dr. suggests I try Celexa or Zoloft (for 9-12 months)for anti-depression and anti anxiety which will cause me less stress and anxiety(in theory). Has anyone else been relieved with these drugs? Do they work with TMJ? Are the side effects worth the cure? Thanks
