You wake up. The covers are still wrapped around your body. Things are not too bad. Then ...
... while you lift your head from the pillow – you are consciously aware of your situation: You are living with a Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ or TMD).
You might have severe headaches, facial, jaw, neck, or ear pain, tenderness in your shoulders, or your entire body hurts. Maybe your mouth is clicking, popping or clenching at embarrassing moments. Last week, while having diner at your friends’ house, you couldn’t even open up your mouth properly.
Or, the last time you've looked at yourself in the mirror, you didn’t like what you were seeing. Your face might be changing because of your worn teeth – and you're not getting any prettier.
Often, you feel depressed, sad, confused, angry, or dead tired because of your TMJ Pain. In addition to the physical agony, the emotional cost runs deep with many people.
THE BOTTOM LINE IS
So ... is this you?
NO! This is not the real you.
It's a person in pain.
"Pain is your brain’s way of telling you that something is wrong. It is like a ‘check engine’ light that pops up in your car; it’s telling you to stop and take notice. It’s an early warning sign that requires your attention before something more serious occurs.
When your jaw joint (TMJ) is out-of-sync or working improperly, it causes an unbalanced bite. This uneven bite results in the muscles of your head, neck and jaws working extra-hard, basically over-compensating for the bad bite.
The over-worked muscles from an unbalanced bite can result in pain that will materialize in the form of migraines, headaches, ear-aches, muscles tenderness, facial discomfort, a sore jaw and a multitude of other symptoms."
TMJ Pain is a complex problem and it can affect every aspect of your life. Physical, emotional, mental, social, economical, personal . . . it’s contributing to a reduced quality of life. Your life.
You might feel like you are suffering alone as family and friends don’t understand and might even doubt the severity of your pain. But you should never doubt – – your symptoms are real! Please do NOT doubt what YOU feel.
For some time now, (maybe even for years) you have suffered from severe, debilitating discomfort. It might be in your jaw and mouth. Maybe in your face, eyes, ears, neck, shoulders and/or back. You have had a permanent headache for as long as you can remember and you can never find lasting relief. Pain sucks. And going through it on a daily basis is the foundation for a poor quality, less-than-mediocre life.
Remember when you lived every day carefree and lighthearted? Your days used to be filled with laughter and joy, not anxiety and irritation. Pain should be a four-letter word that you never have to utter again. Now that you understand what is causing your problems, you have the chance to do something about it.
