i have had tmj for about a year now. i've been chewing gum to make my jaw muscles unclench but from what you say i'm doing exactly the wrong thing. no wonder it itsn't getting any better. i just made an appt with a neuromuscular dr. but i'm not sure i'll go if he isn't covered by my insurance. my chiropractor showed me how you can hold fingers right in front of your ears and see how one side opens before the other. i think this is tmj. i have the jaw pain and the headaches.

i also have pelvic pain. a few months ago i went in and they took out my right ovary and the fallopian tube on that side. it helped but every now and then it is just as painful as it was. i guess i shouldn't complain as it is now 10 percent of the time instead of 80 percent.
i feel for you. i felt like a hypocondriac but persisted to a third doctor until i could get the surgery.
