Does anyone have tight stomach muscles from tmj and see their stomach constantly rumbling and tight?
I know its related to my tmj and i can't seem to stop it and it think its destroying my stomach and immune system how does one stop it...Its from a pinched nerve i think in my tmj area..Its actualyl more painful and annoying than the tmj pain...
i even did a search on this and basically wikipedia shows this type of pain is neuralgic in nature which i already knew...
"While conventional analgesic pain killers such as paracetamol or NSAIDs provide initial relief for some sufferers, the pain is often more neuralgic in nature which often does not respond well to these drugs.
An alternative approach is for pain modification, for which off-label use of low-doses of Tricyclic antidepressant that have anti-muscarinic properties (e.g. Amitriptyline or the less sedative Nortriptyline) generally prove more effective"
the only thing that works is ativan which is a muscle relaxer for that...im sick of taking drugs tho i dont like feeling spaced out just to loosen my stomach...heat pads get annoying too maybe i should buy an electronic one so i don't have to keep getting water and heating it all the time..
i thought magnesium would help this but so far it seems like its doing nothing...i need more calcium probably too
some things dont work for some people. it really just depends on you. have you tried flexeril? I dont take anything for it . i just live with it from day to day. yes get an electric heating pad. you can even get on that has a little cloth that you can get wet so that you have moist heat.
