For the past two weeks I have been having a real hard time eating normal. In the mornings, I could only open my mouth about an inch. It starts hurting towards the left rear side of my jaw. When I open it all the way, it tends to "pop" then to close it "pops" back to where it was. A man told me that my jaw was a bit out of place and he somewhat put it back. Do you have any idea what can I do to fix my problem?

  • From your symptoms it looks like you have problem with TMJ. that s temporo mandibular joint. It can be because of trauma or some infection in the joint. For this you have to go to the oral surgeon who will do the treatment after takng the detailed history. It can be sometimes because of night grinding but that can be diagnosed after the detailed history and the clinical examination For more info on TMJ diseases you can visit the following
