Is this TMJ???
I dislocated my jaw last year. Ever since then I have had TMJ like symptoms. For the past 6 weeks, and for no known reason, I have been experiencing clicking in my jaw, popping in my ear, can't open my mouth wide enough to eat certain foods, can't eat crunchy/chewy foods without TREMENDOUS amounts of pain, random pain in my teeth, and can't bite down on my back teeth. Been to 3 doctors, a dentist, and an ENT and none of them can figure out what's going on. I finally have an appointment with an oral surgeon this week, so hopefully I can get some answers. Is this TMJ? Anybody have any suggestions? Thank you :)

Hi Everyone,I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some advice.

I've also been put on all kinds of medications- I've had nortriptyline, amitryptiline,...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
