Orthotic splint for TMJ ?

User Profile
Hi there. I have been diagnosed with TMJ after 2 years of trying to find out what is wrong with me. My main symptom is a persistent feeling of motion sickness (not nausea), along with "full"ears, tinnitus, swollen saliva glands and stiff muscles in my neck/shoulders. I have been seeing a neuromuscular dentist who has quantified my condition through a series of tests, and gave me an orthotic splint to wear. I have been wearing this 24/7 for 2 months now, but feel no different. My dentist says this could take 6 months or so, but I am looking for some reassurance. Can I expect this treatment to cure my TMD? Many thanks.
