I thought I would be brave and post a question as it's something I don't seem to get anywhere with at th hospital. I had had my bottom jaw removed - too big to reconstruct really and after long deliberation agreed with the hospital I was better off as it is...but that means my jaw is loose and swings about a fair bit - which can be amusing in a dark comedy way - but I can get awful pain. I had two teeth removed and a root canal on my good side before they diagnosed what was causing the pain - I have no teeth at all obviously on the other so have to eat on the left side - (I know I am VERY lucky to be able to eat at all!) - The pain is caused by the muscles in the jaw - basically getting fed up with doing all the work and trying to hold the jaw in place, but is there anything I can do other than take pain killers to control the pain? Or can you r4ecommend the best painkillers to take? I am on Naproxen and Ibroprufen at the moment.
Probably not I guess, but I thought I would ask or see if anyone else shares this little oddity?
All the best to everyone!
