So when I was 17 I had major and I mean MAJOR jaw surgery (I had an open, over, cross bite). I healed fine no, pain. Well now its almost 5 years down the road and I am having major problems like cronic pain (and I have a very high pain tolerance), locking jaw, bad clicking, migraines, pressure… Well everything! So I went back to my surgen and he blows me off like I am nothing!!!! (I regret not looking at other surgens he was awful, I woke up with a major allergic reaction because he used latex on my braces. Which it was stated everywhere that I have a very bad allergy.) So I went to my dentist for a cleaning and I told him about all of my pain (he is a TMJ specialist) did a few x-rays and measured how i move my jaw and it turns out…
- my jaw isn’t sitting correctly.
- Because my jaw isn’t sitting correctly my disk slipped on one side and thats why my jaw locks up.
- and now because my diskk is gone my bone is wearing down (bone on bone…)
- and poor range of motion
Then he tells me we have to classify it under TMJ well… My insurance wont cover ANYTHING related with TMJ. I would have NEVER had freaking TMJ if I never had sugery… I am so upset!! He tells me “I can’t do anything”.
So now I have been having the worst pain of my life and my jaw is wearing down. WHAT THE HECK!! I am trying to figure out what to do so I can get another corrective surgery to fix what mistakes this doctor made… I don’t know what to do, any advice??? 🙁
