Currently, my jaws hurt like a mother! The reason for this bout - wine. Whenever I drink wine, for some strange reason, I end up with major TMJ pain. I had wine for dinner and BAM there was that sharp needle in the jaw pain I hate.
Sometimes drinking from a martini glass does it as well. Also, if try drinking a thick drink from a straw, like a milkshake, or a pina colada, it hurts.
Chewing repetetively also does me in.
Anywone else a TMJ sufferer? What do you do to allieviate the pain?
I haven't found anything to make the pain stop, other than stop doing what it is I was doing to make them sore, and taking Tylenol. Eventually it subsides, but until then - YEEOCH!!!
