I was getting severe pain in my ear it felt like someone was stabbing my ear inside I went to my dr. Cause I thought I had a ear infection and he told me I have tmj he put me in muscle relaxers that I took before bed which did take away the severe pain then I ran out after a few months and can't go back to my dr. Cause he doesn't accept my ins.I have to find a new dr. The pain is even worse than before I can barely eat I'm taking a lot of aspirin and that doesn't help for that long. Not sure what to do go to the hospital or find another Dr that accepts my ins.I don't know how much longer can take this pain it hurts when I sleep to especially when I sleep on that side.
