MS CONTINĀ® - (Morphine Sulfate Controlled-Release) Tablets could cause alteration in taste, ie metal taste. You should contact your MD......not your TMJ doc. Instead of meds and Trigger Point injections I recommend you find a Neuromuscular TMJ expert. Go to www.top3dentist.com

Dear concerned patient A maxillofacial specialist will not be able to help you properly. Your symptoms could be due to a displaced disc of the TMJ (Temporomandibular Joints) and/or muscle spasm. Does your lower jaw freely move to right, left and forward, or ate there restrictions too? Prior to this do you recall a period of clicking joints? I recommend y...
