View Full Version : Clicky jaw :(
I've had the ability to click my jaw for as long as I can remember, but recently, it's become a problem. Whenever I'm eating, or doing anything that requires opening my mouth wide :teehee: , my jaw gets kind of stuck, and I have to try an open my mouth really wide, then it does a big click, and then is fine, til I do it again.
Is this something that can be sorted out? And would I see a dentist or a doctor?
I used to have this really badly. Went to see a alternative health doctor regarding a skin problem i have and he also worked on my back. He realligned my Atlas bone in the back of my neck and just judging from my back and the length of my legs in relation to each other (ie how twisted my spine was) he knew my jaw clicked! It was amazing, so he did a reallignment adjustment, popped my Atlas bone and my jaw is now 95% better! fab.
I've had this for years - can remember having it as far back as when I was 7. Have mentioned it to the dentist a few times but they haven't said anything, will be trying those exercises!
I went to the dentist last Friday and was told I have a clicking jaw on my right side. He said if I don't look after it I will eventually get arthiritis (sp?) in it and it would become very painful. He gave me some exercises to do like moving your jaw from side to side and opening and closing it. Mine is caused by stress. When I get stressed I tend to clench my jaw so much it hurts. I can stop it during the day but I suffer from night terrors and the dentist reckons I'm clenching my jaw when I get a night terror. He suggested me going to the doctor about the night terrors but the doctor will probably only perscribe me sleeping tablets which I don't want. He told me not to eat an apple whole (cut it into pieces first) and not chew a really crusty roll either. I'll have to liquidate my food in a few years:lol:
Try and do some exercises or get it checked out. The last thing you want is arthiritis in your jaw.
