I had jaw surgery about 20 years ago. I'm not sure what it was called but they pulled my chin out and also removed bone from my upper jaw. I have felt pain on and off the entire time since but this weekend I got to where I could hardly open my mouth to eat without having a lot of pain. I know I need to go to the doctor but I do not have the money to go. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas to ease some of the pain.
Sorry I meant to say as well, before my surgery 17yrs ago my jaw kept locking open as well and would only unlock once i woke up from sleeping. One day I took my hands and physically pulled my jaw closed. At that point I shattered my articulating disc.
