I have been posting about the return of severe pre-surgical pain since my july 31st surgery. the return of pain started 10/3 following a pt session. I am waiting for approval from workers comp for mri.
BUT.......last nite something "clicked" literally! I have been having (can't remember when it started) MAJOR problems chewing on my right side.....like my top and bottom jaw don't fit together... I just chew on my left side. It just dawned on me that the neck pain and this may be connected??!!!
I researched TMJ and relation to cervical problems and I have found that there is a correlation. But what caused what??
Who would I call first? My surgeon or go to the dentist??
I am SICK of being in pain and going to doctors and REALLY need to get to the bottom of this.
Does anyone have any experience with the two issues?
