About Me: Female, 43, romulus, MI, member since Jun 2011
ive been in pain since about 2005. It started with really bad headaches then my ears started hurting really bad. it seems like my eyes and ears are more sensitive to sound and light and i get really frustrated and irritated. In 2009 I went to see a tmj specialist who at
[More] first after the initial exam, did not seem to think I had a problem since I didnt' have any clicking or popping (I did have clicking and popping when I was a teen but it eventually went away) I was asked if I wanted them to perform an x-ray and they told me it would cost 90.00, I said most definatly, do it because I can't take this pain and I thought it might help to find out something he couldn't tell from my initial exam. Well it did, when he returned after the exam he was telling me things about not having cartilige in my joint and that it probably had worn all away around the time the clicking stopped. I started a process with mouth peices for a long time but when my dog ended up chewing up one of my major appliances, I did not have the 1000 to replace it and have since discontinued treatment. Basically it's because I am broke and can't even afford a payment plan....I don't know what to do??? Are there any doctors that offer help for free??
