Joint Muscle Pain
elihigg posted:
My dentist told me I had a slight case of TMJ - he then adjusted my bite which helped slightly... 24 hrs later I was back in same shape.. The pain is above my gums (left & right upper sides) which I assume are muscles? I have pain outside of my face near the muscles AND lots of pain inside the mouth up above the gums? What is this AND what can I do to get ease the pain?? HELP!

elihigg - a friend of mine had TMJ and after years of dealing with alot of pain which she thought would never go away, she found an oral surgeon who has a patent-pending splint that allowed her to live pain free. Her testimonial and more information can be found on the doctor's website,, or I hope this helps.
