Re: TMJ is hard but there is hope.

It's always nice to hear from those who are getting good results and recovering!

Pipdog, I've gone through some of your previous posts and believe you are in Phase 2 of TMD treatment? (correct me if I'm wrong). How are you doing? Are you still having any symptoms or have they completely resolved?

I've been in a lower 24/7 orthotic for almost 5 months now. That got rid of grating sounds in my right jaw in about 2 or 3 weeks. But it's not really touching the muscle dysfunction in my jaw, head, neck, and face. I'm constantly swollen, tight, and in spasm in those areas. I'm starting to wonder if it's my neck that's causing all this. From your previous posts I believe you went through a phase like that too. Are you still seeing the NUCCA chiropractor?
