Re: not sure what to do

Well if it is Tmj pain there are some things you can do to relieve the pain. You can massage the muscles behind your Molars. Ice Packs help. Also It Helps to change your sleeping position if you sleep on your stomach or side. Sleeping on your back is best because it takes the pressure of your jaw. Arnica cream is good too. I hope you feel better soon.
