233622 tn?1279334905 DOES ANY ONE ELSE HAVE TROUBLE WHEN THEY ARE CHEWING? MY JAWS WEAR OUT SO FAST. I DON'T HAVE PAIN BUT FATIGUE! I FEEL LIKE MY JAW IS CRAMPING UP SOMETIMES.

704458 tn?1236841243 Their idea was predicated on the fact that that mastication (chewing) uses up energy and burns calories - so teh more you chew your food before you swallow it teh better.... if this is true then surely chewing gum is burning a few calories while you are not actually intaking any.... any thoughts on this?
Avatar f tn I have had three rounds of injections in the mandibular joint. I have a stiff jaw, hard to open wide enough to eat, sore but no visible swelling. Back in the 80's I was a chairside assistant and seem to remember something about gently chewing gum to exercise th e joint and get it to loosen. Is this still ok? How long can I expect it to take for my jaw to loosen up enough to eat with out difficulty?
Avatar m tn My jaw has been popping occasionally while eating and always when chewing gum. I did a search on jaw popping and found that MS is sometimes misdiagnosed as TMJ. Is this possibly another symptom? And should I seek assistance from my neuro or dentist? Is important to have it looked at immediately? (I ask that because I have a neuro appt in a month.) Thanks for any help or advice.
Avatar m tn You said that you chewed a lot of gum and that is exactly why you have experienced jaw ache. I get the same problem if I chew a lot of gum - best thing is to limit your chewing on gum, or avoid gum altogether. Chewing gum is quite morrish so you can end up chewing for far too long. If you feel like chewing on something, have a piece of fruit.
Avatar f tn I think this may be contributing to my problem and once the crown is on and I am chewing normally, the jaw function will return to normal. I hope. However, while I am prepared to be patient, at what point after the crown is on should I seek medical attention for this problem? I have at least a minimum of two or three months to go before the bone is healed and crown is on. Thank you Dr.
429326 tn?1282328354 I've had issues on and off with my jaw being really stiff and sore. Also I get a crampy feeling in the muscles of my neck, especially below the chin, and around the adam's apple. During Christmas my jaw felt weak - I only noticed it because I was chomping on a candy cane! So I don't think that TN is specifically causing your jaw stiffness and weakness.
Avatar f tn Basically my jaw kept popping in and out of place more frequently since my second go at having braces, which finished up back a year ago or so but it's been getting progressively worse, notably since August I can't open my mouth properly anymore and no I haven't been diagnosed officially by a doctor, last time I went with two complaints, jaw and heart so she told me my heart one was more serious and ignored my jaw.
Avatar m tn we did discover that my bite is off alignment my bottom jaw has grown to far so I get TMJ from eating my jaw joints are always a little sore , and when i relax the jaw or when the jaw decides to relax my vertigo usually greatly improves , its very easy to miss the jaw pain because of the dizzy pulsating movement u get so it took me a while to realise how sore my jaw joint actually is , one day i went to a chiropractor and he put his hand in my mouth and put pressure on my jaw and I felt the mus
Avatar f tn I had a similar experience once and the pain was so bad when chewing that I thought for sure my dentist was missing a cavity or fracture! My whole jaw on lower right side hurt even while eating soft foods. After all testing, bite tests, and xray revealed nothing, I was given a mouthguard to wear for several weeks as the dentist insisted I was probably clenching and grinding my teeth. I laughed and rebuffed such a suggestion or that grinding/clenching could cause this kind of pain.
Avatar n tn My mouth will not open and close evenly and when I lay down my jaw locks up and I can’t open my mouth. When I’m up it always pops on the right side opening and closing my mouth while talking and chewing. I would like to know why it does this and what is causing this and if it can be treated. I am in pain everyday with this problem and it is very frustrating. It started a few years ago and it is getting worse. Please help!! Thanks!!
Avatar f tn nt elicit discomfort or pressure, try to extend your head and move your jaw upward and backward bimanually,and move your head down while pushing your jaw backward and upward, this maneuver is supposed to be operated by a dentist, and dental assistant holds the articulating paper. An optimally restored tooth is able to withstand cotton roll clenching test.
Avatar n tn m not overly tired, the nodes are not sensitive or painful to touch, no fevers, no nausea. However, one day while chewing, I did experience some immediate discomfort in my jaw that led to nausea and dizzyness. I ate soft foods for the next three days and it hasn't really gone back to normal yet. Is there any relation between my jaw and these swollen lymph nodes do you think?
Avatar m tn While wearing the temporary, I noticed pain, both in the tooth and jaw. Sometimes, the jaw pain was worse than the tooth pain. Three weeks later, I got the permanent put on. While fitting it, my remaining tooth was very sensitive to the many attempts. He said "that's good, it means it's alive". After the permanent was put on, I had bite issues for a week or so, he adjusted, feels better now. I am left with severe pain...most sensitive under my left cheek bone.
Avatar n tn It feels very similar to when you are ascending in a plane and need to release the pressure by yawning or chewing. Throughout the day I frequently have to adjust my jaw to release the pressure. This ear is especially sensitive to loud noises, especially high-pitched tinny sounds. When there is pressure in the ear, something like a hair-dryer or even a loud voice will cause a sort of static-like feedback sound in my ear. I will often get headaches when this happens.
Avatar n tn I've had that too! I thought for a while it might be an early sign of diabetes or something like that, like a blood sugar thing. I found it would not happen with certain foods or drinks, like coffee, which didn't make much sense to me because I put three sugars in my coffee haha. I found the dizziness or light-headedness more pronounced with starchy foods like breads or french fries. Also the longer I had gone without eating would seem to make it worse.
