Does anyone here have TMJ or know anyone with it? It's basically a popping and pain in the jaw. I've always been able to control my TMJ by not chewing gum, not eating chewy foods, etc. But about a week ago I went to the dentist and she replaced a filling. So I had my mouth open for a long time. Ever since then I have been in almost constant pain. It hurts to open my mouth even a little bit. I've been living off yogurt and smoothies. This morning I woke up and it feels like someone kicked me in my face. Anyone have any advice or experiences?:help: I took a few ibuprofen but I have a feeling it's not going to help anything.
