I’m writing for my sister. She has uncontrolled TMJ. We believe it’s TMJ at least. She is in pain daily.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My sister will wake up pain free. As the day goes by, and as she talks, her temporalmandibular muscles hurts more and more. She is on a soft food diet, she uses heating pads (that’s the only thing that slightly helps). No meds or steroids have worked, she also tried physical therapy with no success. She is wearing a mouth guard 24/7 for about 4 months with no relief, and has also been on muscle relaxers. We just cannot figure out how to get her quality of life back. She’s in pain daily.
