Re: Botox injections

No, I've read that it can take a week or so before you feel any relief because the masseter is a big muscle.

I felt fine, and I had injections in both masseter muscles as well some muscles in my neck.

Re: Botox injections

Botox can take up to 14 days to take affect in the skin; I would assume its the same thing for the reason you are using it. Check with whoever injected you; but I would not be surprised if it is "too soon" for you to feel the effects yet.

I hope it works for you. My dad had botox injections for migranes- it took him over a week to notice any difference, but he says it really helped. He is looking forward to doing it again as it has only lasted about 10 weeks for him.

Re: Botox injections

Thank you, still no noticeable difference, but I'm going to be having more injections this July. Hope and pray it goes away.

Re: Botox injections

I have heard that botox would cause jaw bone loss over the long run so be careful with it. Also, it doesn't address the root problem but only covers it up.

Re: Botox injections

Sorry to hear you are suffering too.

I have suffered with muscular TMD for the last 2 years, I have tried almost everything from soft mouthguards, chiropractor you name it!

Last October I had my first round of Botox, although this helped a little after some weeks it has taken 3rd rounds to really help. I was told by my consultant not to expect much from the first round. My last injection was June, so itís prob worn off by now.

Although the Botox has helped the therapy that has helped me the most and Iím currently pain free has been osteopathic treatment. Itís simple and makes so much sense. The masseter muscle is like any other muscle in the body if it gets overworked it hurts, you need the tension released from that muscle.

My osteo specialises in TMJ and has massaged not only this muscle externally but intra orally and has also released the muscles in my neck which have a huge bearing on the TMJ. I go once a month now to keep on top of this.

The other therapy apart from a hard mouthguard for clenching I am using is Cerezen, little plastic things that go inside your ear, they try and keep your mouth relaxed in the open bite position, however, they arenít cheap at £500!

I hope that the Botox helps you and you get some relief from your pain x
