I have constant jaw when you shiver when you are cold...but mine don't go away. I have TMJ but just devolped the tremors 2 years ago. I am 25 and have had MRIs and know one know why I have them. I am seeing a specialist (cranio mandibular) @ end of this month. Does any one else have these? Why do they happen? There is no relaxed state ever so I can't rest my jaw. So besides the tremors I have TMJ so bad I have replaced my front teeth 4 of them w/ crowns because I push them right out of my mouth.....HELP!! Any ideas on dealing with pain and feeling like a freak because of this jaw. I clench my teeth all day so it doesn't do it. Any one else have jaw tremors?

My wife has tremors in her throat and lingual muscles. One time she had them while she was in the ER and the doc gave her a Benadryl injection, and they went away. Since then, if she is having really bad tremors, she takes a Benadryl and they usually subside. Don't know why, although Benadryl has some anticholinergic properties, as does Flexeril and many other drugs, and that may have something to do with it, in addition to the histamine blocker. Maybe worth a try, anyway. Of course, Benadryl knocks me out or just makes me stupid, so I try not to take it.

Hi princess2.
I have similar problems too. But your problem seems more serious. I hear popping sounds when i open/close my mouth. I dont have pain always, but i feel like my joints are getting dislocated a bit, everytime i yawn/open my mouth wide. My dentist told me I got some problem in my TMJ. Well.... there r many sites that explain u the possible reasons. But sometimes, even doctors are unable to find reasons for every case. And most treatments may not give the expected results. This is because TMJD is not a result of just one problem and in most cases it doesnt have one solution. Most TMJ cases are due to muscle stress(around jaw area as well as neck, shoulder and many parts of the body), teeth misalignment, hereditory factors, a tension filled lifestyle, chewing habits.....etc.. Do a search, and find some sites that explain you the reasons, as well as provide you with some self help. Many sites I came across, advises to do some jaw exercises and massage with your fingers many times in a day. I tried the massage,and it worked quite well for me. But I still have the prob, and I"m going to consult a specialist this month. By the way, do you have problems with jaw movements? do they open & close symmetrically? Mine slides bit more to the right hand side, and as the result, I have asymmetry. But it has improved after I did some self-treatment. anyway u got any idea about splints & how they work? anyone else here can help???? And one last thing before i should avoid getting stressed out, angry, hard to bite stuff, chewing gum relax yourself, massage your jaw area(especially the joint in front of your ears) with your fingers, & apply hot wet towel around your jaw, neck areas while doing massage & jaw exercises & i think you would see a tangible improvement.
