TMJ



Well as the journal implies, i am again up and awake...its 4:55am, laying in bed with the laptop unable to drift off to sleep because of irritation,my blocked ears have an insane amount of tinitus going on -.-,loads of thoughts on my mind,and a concerning pressure disturbance in my temples and jaw..i mean it kinda feels like my temples are both being pushed on as if someone was pressing on them, and its even going around my teeth and jaw/cheekbones..what on earth is it?, this TMJ i hear about?, tension pain?, stress related sheesh...its shouldnt get me worked up to feel restless and iritable but my god....

well, i'm gonna make my insomnia useful, answer a few questions and post one up me'self!

I have the exact same thing going on...It started like two months ago, went to ER and they did a head CT scan...nothing was found. This past Saturday I went to a clinic and he said I had sinus infection and fluid in both ears. Now on antibiotics and nasal spray..no results. Last night went to ER again..they did bloodwork, EKG, chest xray...still nothing. The DR told me to go see a neurologist. My temple pain is worse today and I can not open my mouth all of the way. I have an overbite and grind my teeth when I sleep. I will be going to see a chiropractor next Monday. I can not live with this pressure..I am not the same person. And about the whole TMJ..it is very possible...about 3 months ago I started having severe jaw popping when eating but did not think much about it because the pressure at my temples hadnt surfaced yet.. So I feel your pain but remember this..if it has been happening for a while, then it can not be anything TOO serious. And good luck to you.
