I have TMJ also. My problems were started when my father hit me in the jaw when i was 15. Not only do I have constant pain, I have a constand reminder of him. My TMJ has been aggrivated due to me clenching my jaw due to stress. I understand what you are going through, trust me. There are days I cannot eat, because my jaw hurts so bad, and the headaches, yeah, constant headaches can be a drag.
There is no painkiller I have found that can alleviate the pain, from tylenol to oxycotin. Ice and heat help temporarily. I have also done some research into stretching and exercise that seems to be helping. I am also visiting a Maxillofacial surgeon, and I am going to be fitted with a bite plate to alleviate my jaw clenching. There are things that can be done, no, it will never go away, but you can make it bearable. I have even been having almost pain free days lately. If you want to talk, please, PM me. Don't give up on yourself.

oh I know that feeling, eating dinner becomes a workout. Your jaws get so tired if feels like you've been chewing on taffy for 10 hours straight, it's miserable.

What's this about a bite plate? Is that something that is removeable or permanent?

ask for an alcohol injection into the joint, it'll kill the nerves and no more pain. they will test it first with a local anesthetic ( you don't want anything important paralyzed/numbed). If that goes well they'll do a permanent shot with benzyl alcohol ( phenol ) ( the nerves will regrow but it takes 3-6 months.. in which hopefully it won't be as bad )

From what I understand, it is made of a similar type of plastic as a retainer, sometimes they're also called splints I believe. Apperently, it makes it more difficult to clench and grind your teeth (I do it all the time, I catch myself during the day with my jaw clenched) which can allow the muscles to relax, which is where most of the pain comes from, unless you have extensive bone damage, which usually only occurs when you have had major trauma, or have had the problm for many years. I got mine x-rayed, and the damage was minimal, so hopefully with this, I will be in good shape.
I also do alot of yoga type exercises, alot of stretching and relaxation. Also, some light weight training of the muscles around your shoulders seems to help, since it's all connected up there. Another thing to watch out for is bad posture. Massage of the face and neck muscles can help alot too. I've had this problem for about 7 years or so, I've had time to do research.

edit to add, yes, the bite plate is removable. Although, if it helps, I wouldn't want to.

I know nothing about TMJ, but i do relate to the constant pain. I have major scoliosis ( curviture of the spine) and i have been in braces all my life till about 7th grade, now i have metal rods placed in my back to stop the futher curve of my back. My spine still wants to curve, and i am in immense pain daily, especially when its cold out or rainy, its unbearable and if you dont know with severe scoliosis you have uneven hipbones, making it almost impossible to stand still for more then 2 minutes without unbearable pain. But that is life and you cant give up. I just want to say i feel your pain, but just realize that you were put on the earth with this issue not because you couldnt handle it, but because everyone has there cross to bear, you can do it but you have to believe in yourself. Go get yourself some help, if they say they cant help you, go to every doctor possible, it seems from all these posts that it is curable. If no one will help you call a well known hospital in the United States, like Mayo clinic and ask to speak to someone, there may be at least something. But dont dont dont give up. GL

Go to a better doctor who can help you. Do you live out in the sticks or something? Maybe you need to travel. Where do you live?

Also, this is totally treatable with either surgery, remolding, or seating (As in a retainer-type device).

You need to see better professionals. Remember that out there somewhere is the world's worst doctor, and someone has an appointment with him. You need to keep trying until you find out what you can do to fix it.

No reason to end your life because of something that's totally reversable. I know I'm new to the BC somewhat but that's kind of a bitch way out. Be a man and take care of yourself.

yeh man go to a doctor...

i get migraines pretty easily (from weird sleeping positions, its weird) and theyre an absolute nightmare. when i was in 5th-6th grade i got them every 2 weeks. that was me wanting to die. and yet you have shit like that every day, i am so amazed youve made it this far.

just get a new doctor and some painkillers and see what you can get done. if people arent listening, honestly, youre probably not being loud enough.

If you think it's worth killing yourself over to get rid of the pain then just go to any professional to get it taken care of. You can't put a price on life. Even if it costs a billion dollars or w/e find a way to pay it if it will get you to want to live. There is someone out there who knows how to fix it.

When I was a teenager, I played trumpet in a 100 piece orchestra. I was decent, but the lead trumpet player was a girl who had heaps of talent and was planning on going to university to study music and become a professional musician.

She had always had jaw problems, but they became serious when she was 18. I don't know if it was the same disease as you, but the symptoms were identical. Some days she couldn't play her trumpet at all and would still come to practice, but not play.

She went in for surgery, but she HAD to give up playing because the pressure exerted on the jaw while playing would reverse the surgery she had and it could not be done twice.

She doesn't have a pain-free life now, about 12 years later, but she's many times better. There is something that can be done. Don't give up. See a Maxilofacial surgeon about this.

I don't have TMJ either, but I can relate to the pain and such. When I was in HS I got Crohn's and it took them forever to diagnose it, this resulted in literal probings and eventually since then I have had surgeries etc. During that time I also got blood clots and pulmonary emboli etc. Suffice it to say I went through (and I know I will again) go through a lot of pain. Earlier this year I basically went through another flare up and another clot (needed percocet to control the pain of the clot). In any case, you just need to communicate with your doctor. I was feeling very depressed where I would think about death etc. My GF finally got me to suck it up, I talked with my doctor and he put me on Celexa and now I'm feeling quite good. No more severe mood swings etc.

Doctors are there to help you. If they aren't, find someone else.

I had an abcessed tooth, last year. I lived with that damned jaw popping for like 7 months. You can't eat right, can't talk right, can't even brush your teeth properly. Then one day it just went away and it was one of the best releases of my life. 5 years is way to long to have that, go see a specialist.
