    What to do about crepitus in the joint?

    I think what I have is crepitus in my TMJ joint since I hear all these weird sounds right in/front of my ear. I rarely get pain but I have these other weird symptoms like burning in my head & ears. If it actually is crepitus is there a way to heal that on it's own or would I need some sort of surgery to repair the joint? I'm just completely confused though since if the joint was damaged wouldn't I be having severe pain? I just don't get it. Sometimes it feels like whatever it is goes back into place in a weak way but I can tell it's weak due to the way it feels. But than it pops out of place again with the popping/grating sounds all over again. I just don't know what to do.

    Crepitus is grating sounds in the joint. I used to have that too where if I massaged it it would make noises. I think all of this has to do with being stressed out. I feel it messed my face muscles up. I just don't know how to fix it completely though. It always pops back out of place for me. It's like I can feel the joint is lose on my right side than I hear a pop sound than the grating sounds. I just don't get what I have to do to fix it entirely. It's really destroying me. I had a bunch of tests done & they all come back normal & no doctors have been able to help me.

    Yes, I've tried it a long time ago & it didn't do anything for me. The therapist was almost sure that the TMJ MRI would show something but it didn't. Ever since my MRI came back normal I've never known what to do about this issue. There's always symptoms bothering me. I almost feel like I need some sort of surgery to fix whatever needs to be fixed since it just never gets better. Something is definitely wrong but doctors never know what to do for me.

    And it was just like weird crackling type of sounds when I would massage the muscle areas. I don't know how to explain the sounds just very odd though.

    Yeah, I used to get like this weird maybe numbness type of feeling in my face muscles. Every once in awhile when I look up or something I feel something but it's not a common occurrence anymore. When I move my head down though I get these weird noises near my ear a lot of the time. Like those crackling sounds. I just have no clue what to do anymore. I think I have to go back to a doctor about this but I just don't know who to see specifically. Everyone thinks I'm crazy when I keep mentioning this to someone. I even had to switch doctors the one time since my previous doctor basically thought I was crazy without outright saying it. And now my current doctor doesn't know what to do for me either. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do.
