I get this, too with my flares. I take Robaxin muscle relaxer and Nucynta which is an opiod. It is much stronger than tramadol so sorry you are suffering with this.

Ooh thats not good! Sorry to hear.Are used to take a muscle relaxer called Flexeril or cyclobenzaprine. But I got off that and now I use this powder but it’s from a leaf it’s called Kratom. You should research it yourself and ask your doctor before using. Hope you feel better very soon.Also there is this website called fibrospot.com check them out and see what they got in there.

I often have it with severe flares. I went to the dentist and he gave me exercises for my jaw. They seem to help. I also have a mouth guard for when I grind my teeth that I use and it helps a little.

You should see a dental surgeon who deals with TMJ. I had the surgery done on both sides of my jaw years ago. Mind you it is starting to act up again, but it has been a very long time since my surgery.

You may have to see your dentist to get referral to the dental surgeon.

Good luck.
