My jaw clicks every time i open it at all. Only on the left side. I went to the TMJ doctor but I can't afford the therapy (3000) !! I couldn't believe how much he said it would cost. I am afraid of the dentist cause i can't keep my mouth open for more than a few seconds at a time before i freak out. I am always worried it will get stuck. I dont know if getting a mouth guard will help or hurt it. My neck always is stiff and hurting and my ear to sometimes. I want to find ways to help it at home. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would appreciate anything. I have a memory foam contoured pillow, I sleep on my back all the time with my mouth closed. I dont want my TMJ to get worse like the doctor said it would if I dont get the mouth guard thing he wants me to use. But it keeps your mouth open all night long so your teeth dont touch in the back. I am afraid my jaw will slip out of joint that way in the night and get worse. Ugh!! i wish i was normal.
