I'm being passed from Doctors to Dentists at the moment. The Docs are saying I have an infection in a tooth because of pain around left jaw and blood work. The Dentists are saying there is no infection, I have Temporalmandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome. While they are arguing about it, I keep having to pay for dental consults and prescriptions and the pain isn't getting any better. The up side is I have lost over half a stone because I can't eat properly the down side is that while there is a question of infection I can't take the Enbrel. Has anyone had experience of TMJ and does anyone know how, or whether it is distinguishable from active RA in the joint? I'm used to pain but this is unremitting and I'm dreaming of being able to eat anything with a bit of a crunch! Any info appreciated, thanks.
