My teeth had horrible pain for a few weeks and now it is minor and teeth feel weaker especially the front teeth. My jaw joint has a humming in it,

always feels like it is tense and tired like I've been chewing for hours (only the joint by the ears) My jaw joint has a lot of pressure and when I open my mouth wide jaw lightly cracks on one side and the other sounds like rubbing noise.

My Lyme and Bart are knocked back so I think it's mold or parasites like the LLND does as well. My neck is cracking like crazy and very very stiff all the time and eyes now have floaters as of a month or so. I have never had vision issues. Still have allergy shiners and swelling always around both eyes. I also have terrible brow bone headaches and top of head too.

How likely do you think these teeth and jaw issues will lead to bone and tooth loss? These symptoms are new within the last 3 weeks.

Thanks

There is a disk that is situated between your jaw joint. This can be displaced towards the front if you have ate sticky chewy foods, or slept wrong torqueing your jaw to one side. Or other things like your bite is off.

When this happens, you get the tension you're feeling.

Lyme and company do like joints too. So they can find this weak area if you've 'injured' it lightly.

Try to always sit with lips together, teeth apart. This will drop your jaw into a more relaxed position. Then do not lay on your side. Try to sleep on your back as to not push your jaw to one side.

Treat your jaw as a sprained ankle. Don't use it as in hard chewing. For a week or so, do softer foods. (no steak, licorice, sticky chewy foods, nuts, etc)

Do you know if you clench at night? It can give you this pain in your jaw if you do clench. Your front teeth would be hitting hard all night and then make them feel that way.

Clenching is one of the issues that does bring on TMD problems. TMD will also give you pain in your neck down the sides into your back. It will make you feel like you have ear infections too. If you are hearing cracking noises when you open and close, that means the disk is 'off' it's center between the joint. (It's like a boomerang shape disk).

Yawn with your chin to your chest, soft foods, lay on your back, lips together teeth apart. Advil will relax the tension too.

I speak from working in the dental industry for many many years of experience.

If you do clench, going to your dentist for a night guard might be helpful.

Lyme, Babs, Fry Bug..... Whatever it is, may a treatment be discovered to make us all whole again!

My chiropractor uses an arthrostim machine to adjust my jaw every time it's out of place. It looks like a gun! He holds it as it rat-a-tat-tats at 12 times per second. It's set very lightly for the jaw, vs heavier for use on back muscles, for example.

I do 4 mouth positions - mouth open, mouth closed, lower jaw jutted forward and lower jaw pulled back. Each time he's feeling for where the jaw joint is and adjusting it with the machine on one side of my face.

The technique is called KST or Koren Specific Technique. I suggest you contact that organization and ask if they can recommend any medical professionals who are trained to use it in your area. This treatment can keep TMJ pain at bay.

Read Buhner's new book on bartonella and mycoplasma, those symptoms are in there.

I just came off Rifampin and was on that with Rocephin for 5 months and Doxy for 2 1/2 months. I had this whole itchy eye, allergy shiner thing start and progress all over my face. Now my whole cheekbones and jaw feel like tight muscles, like I've been chewing for hours. Sinuses are involved. None of the drugs I have been on have touched it including IV Zithro and Diflucan. In fact all mad it progress. So did Minocycline at the beginning. LLND thinks mold and I think parasites. It has none of the same Bart symptoms I used to have like the sore feet in the morning.

Seems like Babs, BArt, mold, and even parasites have these symptoms. Yes, and Myco. I am so worried about this. Thanks all for help.
