After my last dr. appt. I felt better and today I woke up without as much pain. He worked on my hip and I feel hopeful. My TMJ has been unbearable to the point where I can't chew anything. But now I have hope. My TMJ may never totally go away, but it might become manageable. My problems with my jaw might be impacted by my legs, because one is a little shorter than the other. My docter even said "your hip is jacked up", his exact words. My hip is rotated to the back and isn't in the normal position. This might be causing most of the pain associated with my TMJ. I don't know yet though, I will have to wait a week and see if my jaw feels better. But his idea makes sense, since all of your muscles are indirectly connected and if my body is thrown off by my imbalance. This can be fixed, so I'm hoping that my leg is the reason for my recent flare-up. I woke up today and felt like crying, I have hope that this can get better. I haven't had hope of anything in a while, only the knowledge that my pain would always be there. I am actually happy for the first time in forever. I feel like I can actually have a life.
