      Have you tried Intra-Oral NeuroMuscular Therapy. This has helped a great deal as well.

        @Whistler not sure what that is.

          @hydroepilepic21 It's a type of massage therapy for TMJ for the inside and outside of mouth

      I'm curious, Does your jaw sublex.

        @Whistler what's that?

      I have gone to a dentist. Where they had actually hooked up a tens machine up to my face. This actually relaxed the area where I was having the pain. I would recommend this as well as a cold compress

        @Whistler the machine has never been an option for me, I was given a list of things to not do and a splint is my only other option.

      I've had some luck with a theragun? Dont apply directly on the jaw hinge, but nearby on the neck and under the chin. Theraguns are pretty strong so try it on your limbs before you go near your face!

      Weed? I just move my jaw left to right until it unlocked as much as I can but try massaging where the jaws connect every day and a doctor told me it should help

        @HocusFocus my parents control everything, and they wouldn't go for that.

      First thing is first…. If your jaw isn’t in place then nothing can really help unless it’s muscle relaxers…. Cutting out stress factors helped me a lot &earning to set my jaw back in place as well as face yoga for mobility & a deep gua sha pressure release
