Oh gosh! hey there! I have VERY little internet access however i would of replied in a heartbeat!

Your story breaks my heart honey but the good news is that you had success with the splint so we know you can become 100 % again!

First advice is say bye bye to that horrible doctor who refuses to give you an MRI now!!!! go to the emergency in your hospital if you have to but you MUST get this MRI!!!

I seriously would go to emergency and they can immediately see you, thats what i did and it was only there i was diagnosed with the correct disorder of tmj!

Hang in there honey! i promise you this will improve , you just need your mri's!!! Please let your doctor know how disappointed you are in her negligent calculus and she has to know how selfish her decision was .. shes not suffering... some doctors are evil like that ! AN MRI is urgent here! everyone is here for you!

how are you feeling now... you need oto get the MRI , more scans and a good dentist in that region! please advise me how your diagnosis is!!!!

Thinking of you honey and praying! You'll make it , never give up ! have hope!

Re: uergent tmj problem ugent please everyone i need your suport and avise

I have had periods too where all I did was argue with everyone in the family about my problem - its was in my mind, nothing could be as painful as I was making it out to be, I wasn't doing enough to help myself, I couldn't have all the symptoms that I claimed to have. I lost 35 lbs in 4 months - couldn't eat, had no appeitite, was nauseous and dizzy and it was hard to swallow anyhting, etc - so then they started saying I was anorexic and that was the real problem. I ahve had some really mean things said to me or about me within the family and although it is quite hurtful - I have to keep reminding myself that they can not possibly understand what this feels like - and that I hope they never do either - I wouldn't wish this on my own worst enemy - it can be that brutal.

Do not give up - start searching for other drs. It sounds like you have a displaced disc based on your feeling that your jaw is going to pop and the intense pressure you are feeling. Try and get a dr to do an MRI. No you will not die (I thought I was going to either have a stroke or be paralyzed some days), although I think many of us often wish we would - but that is the pain and fear talking and when in that much agony we just want relief anyway we can get it.
