HOw can some bosses be so heartr less? - Page 2

post #31 of 33
Welcome back! Glad you're better, and sorry you had to go through all that.

If you can, you might want to try massaging your jaw & stretching it very gently until you see the dr again - hopefully you can get it open & not have to go through anything else.

I'm sorry you have had to go through all of this, but glad it sounds like you are feeling much better. Re the jaw...since I don't know why, my experience may not relate at all, but I have TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint Syndrome), and when having an episode, my bite changes - lower jaw shifts forward and to the right, so that I can no longer open and close my mouth properly (front teeth end up touching, back teeth can not..really a weird feeling!). This comes with a good amount of soreness in the jaw (where the jaw has shifted so it's not seated properly on the skull)and I'm unable to eat more than very soft foods as I can't chew.

I've had good success in treating this with warm moist compresses to the area that is sore (thank goodness I only "unhinge" on one side) and take tylenol and it resolves within a couple of days.

Worth a try for you perhaps?

ps as funky as the above sounds, you can't tell from looking at me, that the jaw has shifted etc. Thank heavens!

hth, and I hope you will not need surgery,

I don't want the surgery but considering the fact that it's been over a month since my jaw has been able to open fully and that I have been doing hot moist packs on it 3 times a day for 30 mins intervils and still haven't gotten much leway in opening I think it's going to have to be done I also have to stack tounge depressers up in my mouth and I can only get 13 in before my jaw pretty much locks up. My Dentists wants me to be able to get atleast 20 in there. So for the next month I am sticking to my watching T.V with sticks hanging out my mouth and Hot packs on my face for 30 mins LOL But keeping my fingers crossed that I don't have to go under. Anyway!!!!!! glad to finally be back and I wish everyone a
