I have had problems with my Jaw for 3 years, I finally went 2 years ago to an ENT who specializes in TMJ. My cartilage on my left side is pushed behind the Joint, causing the cracking and pain. I recieve what they call trigger point injections in Jaw muscle and neck muscle every 6 weeks. It helps some what, the pain is way better than it was before. Im also on Soma 350mg every night before bed to relax my muscles. It helps too but wake up really groggy. Some days the pain is worse alot though depends on how much stress im under. Is there any one else that recieves injections and if so how do they work for you? I've also noticed that my left eye is always puffed up, ALWAYS no matter what. I dont understand that one.
