I am suffering from severe Jaw pain problem for more than 7 years, I have visited many dentists and ENT specialist but the problem is not resolved and its increasing. I have undergone Sinusitis operation and wisdom tooth extraction, Have used Jaw cup for night clenching and teeth grinding, Then later tried some stress relieving techniques, When I browsed in net I find my problem should be because of TMJ,And I don't think I have much stress but have a feel of grinding my teeth at times and also during night. I am afraid that TMJ has been fully affected already and I will not have any more solution as the problem already persist for years. Some suggested that I may have my jaws im properly aligned by nature(I mean the Jaw or cup shape), I hear click sound when i open my mouth and today I suffer from seveer ear pain too along with Jaw pain and so browsed net and got to this page, All the symptoms mentioned about the TMJ problem is there with me, But I am not able to find the exact reason. Its due to stress or Jaw mis alignment or something else, I do not eat hard stuffs as per doctor recommendations, Some suggest that when i take head bath it will aggravate more. Please suggest me the next step which I can proceed with this problem, I almost stopped analyzing this problem until today and was getting used to this pain. Please help me with your thoughts and suggestion on this. Thanks for being patience and reading this big mail. Thanks! Manoj
