Thanks for your question. It does sound as if your TMJ is very symptomatic. You have attempted multiple different therapies with continued symptoms. It is not uncommon for there to be some element of positional complaints related to TMJ, which is what you seem to be describing. This could be happening due to muscular changes that occur when you move, or it could also be that your symptoms are so severe that even the slightest amount of pressure on the nerves near your jaw are enough to trigger the pain. Either way, the symptoms appear to be so severe that more aggressive intervention may be warranted. There are some OMFS who specialize in treating serious problems of TMJ. These can be found in most communities, and are often affiliated with academic medical centers in the United States. Speaking with your local dentist
may be a good way to get direction as to how to proceed next, as that next referral may be to someone who can help you further. It is also possible that you could be having something else that is acting like TMJ but is not. There are a few possible other explanations, and your doctor
can help. Again, please speak with your doctor.
