      It has been a while now since I posted something and mainly because I have been busy trying to get rid of this T. I have been to 2 physiotherapists now and one of them is a specialist in nerves. She seems hopeful and yet not, so I don't quite know what she thinks of my chances. BUT she did do something yesterday when I came to see her for the third time. She ha been focused on my neck this whole time and I mentioned probably half of my jaw problems to her and she got to work.

      It didn't really help until this one thing she did with the nerves on my jaw. I was on my side and she was defiantly pushing on something and almost total silence! only a low semi deep tone I'm my right ear. Since I have started at her practice I have developed T in my left ear too for the first time, but the right side is not as hight pitched any more.

      As soon as she let go and I rolled back it was the same again and it made it even worse that I now remember silence a little more clearly, but I am glad it happened.

      My only solution is that I have TMJD since my 2nd physiotherapist has been treating my jaw for a month now there is defiantly something wrong. So here is my question then. Should I go see a dentist? I have already been and they gave me a bite guard, but the were not that good either. Will the new dentist even could tell since the physiotherapist is making the misalignment better?

      You need to see a TMJ Specialist, not an ordinary dentist. Many here have had splints made, but there doesn't seem to be a high percentage of people, who have gained relief from their T. You maybe a different case though and it wouldn't hurt seeing a specialist for advice. However, These specialists tend to be expensive.

      A Maxillofacial specialist is the best person to see for TMJ treatment after a dentist made you a mouth guard...lots of love glynis

      @Sailboardman I don't worry about the expense of a specialist since pracially every doctor here is free but is is the lavning about of specialists that worrys me. Do you know the bane of the specialist I should see?

      @glynis-harbron what does that specialist do? Is it nerves they fix or more the jaw they focus on?

      @glynis-harbron thanks I will try finding one near me. Do you think he will find something? my physiotherapist has already pushed my jaw back in place but I still feel like my jaw is off.
