Hi Everyone-
I'm hoping someone can explain what's going on with my jaw. In 2007, there was some pain off & on in a couple of lower teeth along with what seems like shifting. about the same time, a burning, tingling numbness had started that went through my face, neck, back and arms.
Then around Jan 2008, it seemed like whole my face and jaw had dropped a little. My jaw seems to hang somewhat slack now and it feels a little like what I would imagine the mumps feel like. I can still eat and talk without problem.
Additionally, a ringing in both ears began a couple of years ago and has become pretty severe. There has also been pain in my inner ears and there is a pretty strong sensitivity to sound. I am mention the ear issues because they feel interconnected with the jaw issues.
I read that facial palsy is sometimes a symptom of Lyme and wonder if this is what has happened.

Has anyone experienced something similar?
Would it be related to the muscles, glands, or the nerves?

Google TMJ, it will explain alot to you, involves your teeth, face, ears etc. If you search the old posts, we have discussed this topic before. D
