Hello I am New to DS. anyway was wondering if anyone with TMJ is getting swollen Temples when they eat? it just started happening to me about a month ago been to the doc everything is fine. almost every time i eat my temples swells they go back down after a few min but then my jaw feels like i have chewed 10 miles of beef jerky! I an just learning about TMJ so don't know if this is part of it? Thanks don't wish this on anyone but i hope im, not the only one!
Hi Everyone,I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some advice. I've had problems with my jaw joints since I was eleven (now 21) I was referred to a surgeon at the hospital four years ago and since then I've had anthrocentisis done on both sides and more recently an athroplasty on both sides. I've also been put on all kinds of medications- I've had nortriptyline, amitryptiline,...
I think I read in one of these threads that TMJ can cause the ears to itch. Anyone know anything about that? I can deal with the jaw pain. I eat soft foods when it's bad but refuse to give up pizza and soft pretzels, or bagels (the worst for me). But my ears itch 24/7 , just about 365. It would just be nice to know that I'm not alone.
