Can anyone help me on this please. I have been having shooting pains in the back of my head for a while and Rheumy sent me for X ray. I have had problems with my jaw for a while (it sticks sometimes). She decided it wasn't TMJ and suggested GP referred me to maxillofacial. They referred me but it was to the ENT Cancer Clinic! The consultant was not amused. However, he still examined me and said he thought it WAS TMJ but he wasn't an expert so I should see maxillofacial. After numerous calls to GP over the last few months they eventually referred me and I have at last received an appointment for 16th October but it says it's for the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery Dept. It is for Consultation only, would still have to wait for any tests. I don't want any surgery, I just want to know what's wrong! It affects my neck and shoulders as well and am on stronger painkillers which are affecting my work as I sometimes can't think straight. Has anyone out there visited one on these clinics and what happened please?
