Lock Jaw!

I have been having my jaw lock for a while now and the past 2 days it's not unclocking. I can sometimes unlock it by poping it but it is too tight for me to do that. I have been going to a doctor for a while and he just said ice heat and ibuprofen. Anyway i can't take it anymore so finally the got x-ray's on monday and it will be sent to a specialist. I am just wondering if anyone else has this problem too? if so what do you do to fix it? Does accupuncture work? what about chiropractor? ANYTHING??? please I am desperate!

  • It sound like you have TMJ; you should see a dentist and a chiropracter
