TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint board

Thanks for the response. My dentist made me the mouth guard a year ago because he said my teeth show that Iam in fact a grinder in my sleep. The pain and popping of the jaw just recently started I think because I have been sick now since end of June. Dealing with it is very stressful and I have not been wearing my guard so I most likely have been grinding my teeth alot at night. My doctor gave me Salsalate which is for joint pain and that helped immediately. He just told me to start wearing my guard every night which I have been now, and the pain seemed to subside. :) He also had a doctor minipulate my neck which has seemed to help alot with the neck pain, it was a little out of whack. But I will definately ask my dentist to check to see if the guard is a good fit still. Thanks again for the response! :D
