Hello everyone!
I woke up this moring and my lower jaw and insides of my cheeks hurt.  It hurt to chew my food and food and drinks made the insides of my cheeks burn and sting.  I took a nap this afternoon and the symptoms were much worse and my lower left jaw was even swollen.  I thought maybe I was grinding my teeth or clamping my jaw shut real hard while I sleep, but that doesn't explain why the insides of my cheeks hurt too.  Has anyone else had something similar happen?  I would appreciate any ideas and what I can do to help the situation.
Thank you very much!
Bridget

hi, i have never been in this type of situation but my mom had some very similar symtoms she went to several docters and then one docter asked her to put one finger in each ear and open her mouth then she heard a pop which means she has tmj or basicly her jaws out of line and the best thing that works for her is goody powders i am not for sure that you would have tmj i am not a doc but i do hope that this helps you

Thank you so much for your input.  Next time I see the doc I'll have him take a look.  Thanks again! :)
