Thank God After two days of not being able to open my jaw more than enough to...
It's spasming now...I will try ice. Thank you, Katie. I'm neutral, I just slept funny that one day.
Feel so bad for you. I've been there so many times.
Thanks, Melissa. :) I feel so much better today!
yes I have constant TMJ too - gentle massage with a bit of pressure point in the sore bit helps a lot
I had to take an ibuprofen 800 both days and sleep on my back so my jaw would shift back. I know there is something herbal I can take for inflammation instead, but I'd have to look it up...and you don't think clearly with that kind of pain.
Turmeric and flax are anti-inflammatory.
If you have a Walmart you can get Max Freeze. Its just like Bio freeze but half the cost. Only down side to using it for your jaw is the fumes at first. (Eyes) I also use Voltaren (script anti inflammatory gel). It helps tremendously pretty much everywhere. I use both as I'm not allowed anything for pain in pill form unless its extremely bad and even then my Neuro frowns on it.
and you could stick on mini magnets - they help my RSI naturally within 2-3 days
