: : Cindy,
: : Is this a prescription drug? (Most likely is). Do you experience a sense of intermittent swelling like feeling in your neck just below your jaws/ears? I feel swollen like there most of the time. I'm woundering if this may help.
: : Happy for you that you found relief!
: : Dee

: : : After months of medicines, doctors (including dentist, myofacial specialist, ENT, physical therapy, acupuncture, diet change, bite plate, neck contraptions, and total frustration, I finally tried a medication that got rid of my constant earaches, neck ache, and jaw soreness. It may not work for everyone, but if it will help just one or two people, it might be worth a try. The medication is Flexeril, and doesn't have as many side effects as some of the other muscle relaxants I have used. I guess I learned that you just have to keep plugging away til you find something that works for you. I was 80-90% better just 2 hours after trying this med. Good luck to you.

: Dee, Yes, Flexeril is a prescription med, but there is a lot of info. about it on the internet.It seems to relatively safe, according to the Dr.
: Although I never felt swellig, I did have pain in that area. I still have a small amount of discomfort, but NOTHING like I have been enduring. Best wishes
: I use soma (this is a muscle relaxant; I can even function pretty well with it) I take it every night when I go to bed, and prn (as needed during the day, when I'm not working, cause it makes you kind of drowsy) Also you can try celebrex (this is a antiimflammatory drug. It's usually used for arthritis) I take 200mg a day. I'm going to increase this to twice a day (every 12 hrs; per my doctors ok) Hope this may work for you and anyone else out there!!!!!!!!!!
