Hi, I went to the dentist and had work done on a back tooth.
My problem now is I can hardly open my mouth, and it is really painful when I try.
I went to my GP, and as I have arthritis and temperalmandible jaw disorder, (TMD) I understand it is due to the duration of the treatment that has inflamed my jaw.
I called my Dentist and they advised it may be the numbing injection that has caused tismus? Which can occur if the injection goes into the muscle.
(We'll eventually) my predicament is I just have to wait, possibly weeks for it to go, and there seems to be little to ease it.
I went on U Tube, and found exercises, and massage techniques, which I have been following, to help ease the pain, so why couldn't the professionals give this advise, rather than wait and it will eventually go.
Just needed to get this moan out,
PS my usual GP is very good, but can't always get an appointment with the same person.
