    Don't chew gum or hard candies. Seriously. Also find out if your insurance will cover physical therapy. I was on Medicaid and it was covered. I had massage and acupuncture and it was helpful. Get a night guard if you grind or clench your teeth in your sleep. Practice relaxing your jaw and neck.

      ah the gum chewing it’s hard to stop but I have to 🥺 it’s tightening my jaw when I do

    Be easy on your jaw and get an x-ray. Mine had the disk slip and the ball joint is now a triangle. Try and do preventative and corrective care asap

    Be extra conscious of your mouth!! A lot of people clench naturally without realizing it and that can cause harm. When you catch yourself doing that try to keep your teeth from touching while still feeling natural! I hope this helps
