Ever since I have had Lyme I have been off balance , bumping into walls, and sometimes dizziness and vertigo. I had prisms for my glasses which seemed to help but I am now trying something that I am excited about and want to share with you.

I have read that 95% of Lyme patients have some TMJ issues. I decided to check into it since on and off I have had stiffness in the jaw, sore chewing muscles, ringing in the ears and balance and vertigo problems.

To make a long story short...I have gotten a special dental appliance that moves the mandibular (lower jaw) forward, and takes pressure off of the ear. In just two days, my balance is HUGELY improved and no more grating noises when I open my jaw.

It is a bit involved but if anyone wants to know more, I will go into more detail.

I too am studying up on TMJ. I've been told by 4 different alternative people that have worked on me over the years that I had TMJ.

I ignored it because I had no problems with jaw pain. Well come to find out, not that uncommon. TMJ can present in many other parts of the body.

For the last 2 years I've been losing teeth due to poor dentistry and of course Lyme & co. I've lost 6 back teeth so far. Come to find out we have a LL dentist in this city. Thanks be to God.

Trying to get this mouth of crowns with toxins underneath attended to. Now that I finally informed my Myofascial Release person about my mouth issues, she will be able to start working on the root cause of so many of my issues.

She told me TMJ usually presents itself in the pelvic area. OMG, no wonder when I had oral surgery and lost my one root canal and two other molars.....all of a sudden I developed severe hip issues.

She couldn't believe I never mentioned my dental issues in the six months she had been working on me. I wanted her to fix my horrible pain areas?

It's called a MORA appliance.I will share a couple videos which explain it all pretty well. Fascinating! I will probably go on to have my arches widened with an appliance and then may need some sort of braces.

The gentle widening of the jaw can be done at any age despite the misinformation that your sutures fuse around the age of 12. I am 65 and am considering this. What I am having done now is more of a diagnostic tool to see if the new bite helps. Some people can end up wearing it only at night if that keeps the symptoms away.

In the beginning you wear it 24/7 except for when eating. I find it very comfortable. NO MORE BUMPIMG INTO WALLS or almost tipping over. It feels so good! I will post the video links in another post.

I think that it is extremely important to find a neuromuscular dentist in order to treat this issue properly. I was referred to a neuromuscular dentist in Tarrytown New York.

The dentist I saw first said...please please go to this woman dentist he said....you will avoid a lot of expense and treatment failures if you go to her. She is extremely precise...which is what is needed when fitting with these very effective appliances.

For those of you who also have neck, back and hip problems...and even autonomic nervous system issues.....this is a must to look into and research carefully before deciding on a practitioner.

many neurological diseases are somehow connected to this... https://www.youtube.com/user/drdemerjian i would guess some bacteremia, that also affects the CCSVI - the condition of veins located behind the jaw joint.

The magnesium deficiency that so often goes with lyme can also play havoc with TMJ in various ways, just two: Bruxism (grinding teeth), and jaw bone health. More:
