Hi im 17 years old and im new here, im going crazy because my jaw is locked and i cant force to open wide my mouth because i think its permanently locked, i think im suffering from tmj, i read about it in google, i am not yet going for a checkup because my family doesnt have money. But the symptoms of TMJ is exactly what i feel right now. Like my nape of neck always in pain and my shoulder, i experiencing headaches sometimes, weird sound when opening my mouth wide, tooth sensitivity to cold, its painless i only experiencing pain when im trying to force my mouth open wide. ahm i can eat well but only soft food i cant eat thick and hard to bite foods because i dont want my jaw to get worst. It started happening when i woke up in the morning and i noticed my jaw is not in the proper place. In first i think its dislocation but when i do some reasearch i discover it was TMJ because of the exact symptoms i was feeling right now. In the past few days i can forcely open my mouth but i hear some clicking, popping or grating sound. It sounds weird. But now i can open my mouth but not wider and i feel the bottom jaw is permanently locked? And i dont hear sound anymore like clicking or what. But its painless i only experiencing pain when i force to open wide my mouth. I am not trying to open wider my mouth anymore because what if it might getting worst when i force it. I dont know whats the cause of this especially having this I dont know what to do its driving me crazy im only 17 years old to have this kind of health problemS. I wrote on this site for someone to help me. I just wrote on this community because i dont know where to. i just need some opinion for now but when i have enough money i can go for a check up. Thankyou so much hope you all could help me. Godbless.
