I just had a question as to whether it is possible for any of the symptoms of TMJ to become permanent if not properly treated in time. In particular, problems with blurry vision caused by TMJ, even if it's reached the point where it's essentially at least a little messed up 24 hours a day, is there any chance that won't go away when the TMJ finally gets better? Thanks!
I noticed over the last 27 years, that symptoms come and go. When my TMJ is calm and pain-free, problems with my ears, eyes, nose, throat, neck and shoulders also tend not to be so bothersome. So, even tho there really is no way to answer your question, I would say the possibility definitely exists.
I answered that in a round-about way, didn't I? Just to encourage you, since my TMJ has become "manageable" over the last 17 months, my head has been the clearest I can ever remember. And I can't believe that my left shoulder doesn't hurt all the time. It did for years. Thank God for what He has done.
Hang in there. Don't give up looking for the "right" help for you. Research. But no stress.
I personally dont think that it would become permanent unless the jaw damaged the nerve that goes to the eye. early treatment is essential in all tmd cases. If i had even known what it was when the symptoms came on(Ive had it all my life and didnt know what was going on till i was 12) I highly doubt that i would have ended up where I am today. hang in there there is hope. if you need me pm me or email me. im right here for you.
Im a success story and just want to help others become what i am.
I am also a TMJ suffer, I am living in texas, I have gone to many doctors, but none of them can help me. I am here asking for help. does anybody know any good doctors in texas area? I would strongly appreciate if you can help. thanks
