I just got diagnosed with TMJ (tempomandibular joints) today any tips from people who also have that disorder.
Temporomandibular joint disorders
I have that too but treatment isn't covered by my insurance. Following this for any suggestions
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.
Thank you so much
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
