    Lightbulb I got my mouth open after a year of being stuck!

    Long story short, if you've read my other post I haven't been able to open my jaw since july 2017.

    One morning I woke up and it was completely locked into place and it just never opened back up again... I took muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories, got a nightguard, went to multiple chiropractors, dentists and physiotherapists, got botox, none of them made a difference to me. This problem has caused me thousands.

    I just fixed it with a $30 object.

    I have tears in my eyes as I type this because I thought I'd never open my mouth again. So I want to share it for anyone who has a closed lock.

    I bought a gua sha for a completely unrelated reason because I'm really into skincare. It's basically a flat rock (mine is made of rose quartz) that's supposed to uplift your face. About a week ago, my jaw was really aching so I decided to grab the gua sha on a whim and rub it up and down my jaw muscles. I no joke did this for about 40 minutes before bed.

    I noticed my jaw was opening a tiiiiny bit more (which is more than anything else has done) so I told myself I'm gonna do this every day. This is the sixth consecutive day of massaging my jaw muscles with the gua sha and it popped open. I'm in complete disbelief, I thought I was doomed with this problem forever. There was a lot of crackling at first and and then pop! It opened up. I can now fit three fingers in my mouth with ease. I'm SO HAPPY.

    When I first started doing it I could feel the muscles were super rigid, tense and had tons of knots in them. As I kept doing this daily the muscles in my face feel smoother and smoother. I always believed it was a bone problem causing my issues but this proves it was entirely muscular. I follow up each time with 30 minutes of heating pad on my face.

    I'm going to continue doing this daily so it doesn't lock back up.

    I really hope this helps someone out there. I've tried doing facial massages with my fingers before and they were completely useless to me. Please try!

    Thank you so much for sharing, I'm so glad this worked so well for you! Is a Gua Sha similar to a Foreo Luna? I have muscle spasms that are really severe currently in my jaw muscles. Thanks
