Inflamed jaw
I have TMJ and have been going to physical therapy for exercises and ultra sound for 2 weeks. Left side most involved. Last Sat. after eating ice cream I had terrible  8 to 10 cramping spasm pain on left side.  Since then off and on I am experiencing the same pain involuntarily sometimes lasting 5 to 15 minutes. I do not want to take OTC Aleve etc as I have had stomach ulcers. Do you know of other alternatives to reduce pain and inflammation? Also have a little swelling on left side.  Any help appreciated

I was told by my dentist to have a soft diet when it is sore, also heat and support when yawning. In addition I am supposed to talk less!. I am sure you already might have tried these if you've been been having treatment etc, but it could be worth a try.
