    tmjd possible locked now, not sure what to do

    I've been dealing with TMJD issues since right before Halloween 2018. I realized a few days ago after trying a splint that my jaw joint on the left doesn't pop anymore and that I can only comfortably open my mouth with two fingers between my teeth. Any advice at this point? I tried the mouth guard but it made things worse, had it adjusted but don't have hope that it will work. Should I tell my concerns to my tmj dentist. My throat muscle is tight and I'm having pain and a hard time sleeping with it. Like my mouth just wants to close up at night. I'm scared and having anxiety. Seeing my primary for some anxiety or depression meds.

    Please see an oral surgeon. A primary doctor is not going to be able to help you and a regular dentist is only going to refer you...Skip the wait and call an oral surgeon who can help you!
