TMJ

Today I went to the TMJ specialist in Winnipeg. I have had jaw issues ever since I was a teenager. But for the last year or so it had been causing me a lot of pain and headaches and I don't think I have been sleeping well.

The visit went very well. He has a solution for my issues that involve a dental appliance during the day, and a different one for night. I really would like to get them, but they are QUITE expensive. I will have to figure out a way to pay for them soon though, because my jaw pain is getting worse and worse as time goes by. I have good days where it doesn't bother me at all, and then I have bad days where it is very uncomfortable.

I feel like I have so many things wrong with me. :(

I have TMJ too, and it sucks! I've asked my Chiropractor to adjust my jaw, and that really really seems to help. Have you ever tried that? I've also been waiting to be referred to the specialist in Winnipeg, but my Doc seems to forget those kind of things :(

I hate it when the solutions you need always cost an arm and a leg. Praying you find a solution to feel better soon!
