    The pain felt like it was in my ear, and I swore it was, but after seeing like 4 doctors they said it was TMJ. I'm supposed to go see a dentist but keep putting an appointment off.

    BTW, my left jaw pops like 7-8 times a day, and both are hurt when I clench them together.

    I have a severe case of it. I feel like my jaw comes unhinged at times on the left side. I have always had an uneven bite. Boxing didnt help either I dont think.

    You get used to it. The pain can be very bad at times. I have a high pain tolorence and like I said when your in pain everyday you learn to live with it.

    Its very expensive to fix, IF they can fix it. Each case is different. Its so expensive in fact that most dental insurance plans cover everything BUT TMJ.

    Good luck bro. It sucks, believe me I know.

    Tmj

    HELL YEA I HAVE TMJ! Feels like my ****ing sinuses are full and I always have headaches, neck, and back pains too. It really sucks when you are weight training because you are always grinding and putting stress on all those muscles anyways. I wear my bite splint while I work out because it relieves a lot of that stress. TMJ makes me feel nauseated too. That **** sucks. BUT IN ANY EVENT, DO NOT GET SURGERY!!!!! My dentist stresses that so tough. GOOD LUCK fellow suffers.
    To get big....You gotta act big, eat big, and play big...Anything less, nothing gained!!!!

    I have TMJ but I don't suffer from it. At least not yet. The right side of my jaw is always popping. I heard that you can get surgury for it but it doesn't really help. Unfortunately I don't think there is a cure for it. Just try to not grind your teeth or clinch your jaw as much as possible. It sucks taking a girl out to eat on a first date and annoying her constantly with my popping jaw.

    Talking

    TMJ (or TemporoMandibular Jaw Dysfunction Syndrome for those wondering) can be sorted out with a proper exercise routine for the jaw, or so I found anyway.

    These should be done daily, and you'll feel improvements after a couple of weeks (I had it when I was 17):

    Exercise 1: Face forwards, open your mouth, tilt your head back and close your mouth. Feel the stretch? Good, then repeat up to 10 times.

    Exercise 2: Clench your jaw. Hold it for three seconds, release. Repeat up to five times.

    Exercise 3: This is difficult to describe, so sorry if it doesn't make much sense. Facing forward, purse your lips, open your mouth into a wide "O" shape then back to the pursed lips, as wide as you can. Repeat 10 times.

    You can also try not to clench your jaw too much, or when you yawn, try to keep your mouth closed. It all helps. Hope that helps.
    BEFORE: 235 pounds, 39.4% bodyfat.
    CURRENT: 149 pounds, 23.0% bodyfat.
    TARGET: 140 pounds, 18% bodyfat.

    It's a long hard road, but well worth the journey. :)

    I'll keep you by my side with my superhuman might.

    There is an expensive mouth guard that you can sleep with that is supposed to help the problem.

    Yep, that's what I did. My jaw clicks a bunch and got so stiff that I couldn't open it very wide, even just to eat a sandwich or something, couldn't get it open enough. So dentist took a mold of my teeth and made me a bruxism split, basically looks like one a combo of those "invisble" retainers and a mouth guard that you wear over your teeth, and it's a bit thicker and prevents you from grinding as much in your sleep. You only have to wear it at night. Oh also, before he did that he did something called equillibration where he basically put little bits of wax in my mouth and found where my bite was off in the back and sanded them in spots so my teeth could more easily slide and move from side to side when i chew, which can cause some of the stress to the jaw. Well since I've had those things done I've noticed a big difference. My jaw still clicks from time to time but it isn't as painful anymore and I have a better range of motion. Give it a whirl.

    oh, and the cost of the splint was about 200$, yeah a bit pricey, but should last you forever.

    I have had it for 11 years. Caused when i was in a car accident.
    It only bothers me when I workout and lift some really heavy weights, then it get misaligned, and takes awhile to slide back in place.
    Makes it hard to talk to anyone at the gym, because my voice sounds like its being spoken in extreme distortion.

    I was diagnosed with TMJ today by my doctor but I've known that I had it in some form for a long time. I have a severe case, its been affecting me in a number of ways for the past few years but I haven't really sought treatment until now. Its kind of messed up my face to where I always have some discomfort and I think its kind of pinched my nerves or something. Anyways I have gotten a prescription for muscle relaxants and these are starting to help take away some of the discomfort.

    I am going to be going to a specialist for this and probably end up going to a physical therapist to work on this. I guess it depends on how bad your case is but if it bothers you a lot you should really look into getting treatment because it can really suck to have this.

    Muscle Relaxants for TMJ

    Has anyone else taken muscle relaxants for TMJ? I just started taking 10mg which is a small dose, according to my doctor, today. It seems to be helping somewhat but I am wondering how this will affect my workouts. Any input would be appreciated.

    Tramadol

    Well I started on the muscle relaxant and found it didn't do much, it also gave me this kind of rubbery feeling in my muscles all the time and I just didn't think it was going to really help me as I still had the pain.

    I went back to the doctor and told him of the pain I had and he prescribed me with tramadol (ultram), its a non-narcotic pain killer but its pretty strong and when I take it I have almost no pain. I would definitely recommend trying this, I think it has potential for addiction but as long as you are careful and stick to the dosage it should be ok. I am going to be starting some sort of physical therapy soon so I think that the two combined should help my TMJ get a lot better.

    (By the way, you can't take the muscle relaxant while on tramadol)

    I wear one. Not that expensive maybe $350-$400 range. My work covered 80% of it. Regardless of the cost a great investment. I wear it at night before bed until I wake up.

    Unless TMJ stands for Too Much Jacked then no..I don't suffer from it.







    I also do not suffer from Too Much Jacked, sadly.




    nah, I do have a bit of 'clicking' in my jaw when I eat and what I would describe as one side of my jaw coming unhinged a second before the other side does when I open and close my mouth but, it's not painful by any means.

    Pillow Change

    Just wanted to follow up on my post regarding Tramadol for a pain killer, after taking it for just 3 days I'm already stopping it, it has too many adverse affects on the rest of the body (fatigue, makes you feel kind of not like moving too much, also gives an overall jittery feeling and feels even like I have a fever at times.. ehh horrible) so I am hoping I will find a cure by going to a physical therapist for this.

    Also, I got a specialized pillow (got it at wal-mart for like $20) its meant to keep the spine in proper alignment and it seems to help a lot as it keeps pressure off my jaw, even if I am laying on my stomach. I just realized how much a normal pillow can put pressure on your jaw and head so I think just changing this will help in the long run.

    I have the same thing and an overbite. I guess the only solution is to get orthanagthic(sp?) surgery done. But yeah that would be costly. Depresses the hell out of me.

    EDIT: So anyone head of orthognathic surgery or done it?

    I've heard that surgery can end up badly for this sort of thing, I would be careful and do some research on the internet and go to a couple doctors before actually getting any surgery done. Anyways, I started to take the flexeral again and it seems to be working, it turns out I was taking too high of a dose the first time which gave me the bad effects, it definitely sucks to have this but at least there are things that can make it somewhat better.. If you get a hot pack and put it on your jaw for a few minutes a couple times a day this helps as well.

    I know this is an old post.

    I recently found out my right TMJ is ripped and was told the only thing left to do is Surgery. I've had a ton of vertigo, headaches, neck aches, etc. I notice its worse when I talk a lot or eat. Has anyone had the surgery?
