Controlling Flair-Ups?

Hi all. I have been feeling fine the last few days, then all of a sudden, this morning at around 11:00 my teeth start hurting, my neck feels tense, my eyes feel sensitive, my jaw feels tight and all that unpleasant stuff. I'm fed up feeling like this and it affecting my personal life. It's the weekend and I want to be able to enjoy the msot I can. Is there a wy to do this? Is there a way to control flair ups or at least make them less apparent? Can posture bring on flair ups? What about the position I sleep in? Pleasee someone help me enjoy my weekend!

P.S. Does tylenol help at all?

Re: Controlling Flair-Ups?

I understand what your mean. I've had a flare up for 2 1/2 months. They did x-ray and he said my joint and that looked good. I even had a cervacle spine x-ray which just mim. arthritc changes. I went to PT for a month which helped my neck. I'm now on naprosyn. I have an appointment with another dentist in 2 weeks just to get a 2nd opinion. I'm not much of a drinker, but boy I feel like getting drunk. How does alcohol affect it- anyone know- maybe I'll have such a hangover tomarrow I won't notice the TMJ-ha! Ha!

Re: Controlling Flair-Ups?

I like to drink too but since i've felt this TMJ (last 10 months) I haven't gotten drunk. I'm worried it will make it worse. I know for a fact that alcohol does a number on your muscles. It's bad for it and I don't want to feel worse than I feel now since TMJ is semi-muscular (I think).
