Someone help please!

Ok, tonight I am really having trouble swallowing. I have been doing research online and now am freaked that I have permanent nerve damage thats causing this swallowing problem. Does anyone get swallowing problems from their TMJ and does it go away? I am sooooo scared right now!

Re: Someone help please!

I have swallowing issues only now its not as bad as it was when my tmj first started. Within the first few months I lost over 30 lbs due to not being able to swallow and a tightness which felt like a noose around my neck, gagging and nausea and even vomiting. It will get better but you need professional treatment - generally chiro and a tmj dentist to reposition your jaw and c-spine so your tongue can function properly. If you feel this is not due to your tmj then you may want to see a neurologist since there are various neurological/medical disorders that can cause this as well.

Re: Someone help please!

Thankyou so much for replying! I am seeing a chiro on Friday so hopefully he can help me. I had a ton of nuerological tests dne 2 years ago and they came out fine so this has to be my jaw. It seems like my swallows are incomplete and I cant swallow anything solid, only noodles, applesuace and yogurt. I just cant afford to lose any more weight!
