Not a cure, but a relief. I sometimes suffer from severe jaw pain that wakes me in the middle of the night. I take 1 capsule of cayenne, mix it with water in a shot glass and drink it down. The jaw pain immediately goes away. If I don't do this, the pain can last as long as 20 minutes. It also eases the anxiety I feel once the pain starts.
It sounds like the same thing I suffered with years ago. My chiropractor put his fingers in my mouth and pressed on my left side at the hinge area. My jaw was stuck on the right side. He kept applying pressure until the right side relaxed. I have used this technique when I feel one side or the other start to lock. Do it yourself... Between your upper and lower jaw at the hinge. Good luck.
I had severe jaw pain and was prescribed naproxen (an anti-inflammatory) by my doctor. After trying other remedies, I heard that I might be allergic to eggs. I stopped eating them and in 2 weeks, my pain was gone. It was also recommended that I cut down on bananas and potatoes for a little while, as they irritated my gums. It definitely helped.
I have recently started to experience jaw pain, and nerve pain on the lower right side causing nerve pain in those teeth. At first I thought I had an ear infection went to the doctor about that and my doctor said it was a sinus infection. I went to see my dentist and he explained that the nerve pain was from clenching my teeth on one side. He put some temporary pain medicine on those molars but it only lasted a day.
I stumbled on DMSO read up on it and ordered some pharmaceutical grade DMSO. I dabbed full strength on my back teeth and on my gums. in about 5 minutes all the pain was gone. I also put some down my jaw line and next to my ear and immediately I had experience relief.
At first I had to apply DMSO about every hour but now I only apply about every 4 hours. What a huge miracle.
I have chronic and worsening osteomyelitis in my maxilla (Jaw) bone and have begged for months for surgery, yet I have been turned down a dozen times or more. I am desperate. I am going to try drinking H202 35% at ratio: 8oz pure water to 3 drops H202,3 times per day. I am apprehensive to say the least. I am presently consuming 17 Antibiotics per day.
Is it safe to continue the AB along side the H202 therapy?
I also have dentures and I figure I should remove these from contact with H202?
I also feel like political prisoner within my own country of birth and I am desperate to return to my tribe, to my real family.
Clenching and grinding teeth may be a magnesium deficiency. Try having a 30 minute bath/soak with Epsom salts before you go to bed and see if there is any difference.
I found on EC one article about tmj under the sesame oil pulling section -it looks that sesame oil pulling helps on the jaw pain.
There are also at least 2 acupuncture points dedicated to locked jaw condition -I guess that an acupuncture session may help.
I too have been under great stress due to ilness and 'every day life' xxx there is nothing finer than 'stress for beating the body up!! I am going to suggest a book, yes a book xxx Its by JOHN E. SARNO, M. D. He discovered what he named, 'Tension Myositis Syndrome' (T. M. S) I too had 'locked jaw's' and intensce pain, which I belive were origanally triggered off by a medication. Which in turn getting off of it AND withdrawaral symptoms, only made my 'stress levels' escalate even more!! I nearly bit my dentist fingers off at 1 appointment because I could not 'open wide' and the dentist shoved their hand in the corner of my mouth and tried to pry it open futher, bad mistake! My jaw and 'clamped completely closed, and I was panicking 'more stress!! ' and the dentist was break dancing and screaming, and I was in agony, trying 2 scream, and then had a bloody 'asthma attack' just 2 cap it off!! (even more stress! ) see?
Anyway 2 cut along story short the book is called 'THE MIND BODY PRESCPIPTION' by JOHN E. SARNO, MD. U can search the web for info, on him and T. M. S but BUY the book xxxxx Howard Stern also used this when he was in agony from back and shoulder pain. You can get it on 'Amazon' there is a lot of positive reviews on it, and a few neg 1's, but do not let this put you off. Also, a wise west indian nurse once told me, 'even if the pain or thoughts won't let you sleep lay down and rest the body 4 its as important as resting your mind. Believe me you have my sympathy as I have med probs that besides chronic pain stop me from being able 2 do the simplest of tasks. But I also belive in 'seek and you will find the answer' xxxx Anything is worth a try when you are suffering to the point of despair which only causes more anxiety, stress, and pain xxxx hope this helps you, you may have to read it a few times as some people stated, but stick with it and try 2 avoid people, or situations that stress you, even your own family!! They're usually the worst offenders!!! LOVE Andrea c xxxxxxxxxxxx
