You might want to have your jaw checked!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hello. I've experienced these symptoms for a long time: Vertigo, constant lightheadedness, neck tightness, unsteadiness, brain fog, sensation of falling, stuffy ears, pins and needles around my nose, cold fingers, tingling feeling in my arms and face...I've been to several specialists (neurologist, cardiologist, chiropractor, etc.). I was finally diagnosed with TMJ disorder. It didn't really occur to me to see a dentist until my jaw started clicking. I am still under treatment, and I am still far from healed. But at least I have a name for my condition now. The goal is to have my upper and lower teeth 'fit together' perfectly. Right now, my jaw is still out of whack. But since the dental work on the right side of my jaw (getting the upper and lower teeth to come together perfectly through tooth reshaping, crowns, etc.), I've had noticeable relief on that side. The left side is actually more severe. If you have the above symptoms and still don't have any answers, you might want to have your jaw checked by a TMJ dentist/specialist. God bless. Best regards!

      Hi. I used to wear a splint 24/7. It didn't help much with the balance problem, but my neck tightness was completely relieved, and also the clicking.

      But it wouild help the clenching and grinding which aggravates the TMJ.  My night guard looks like it has chunks out of it. I have to replace annually   Kinda expensive about 500.00
