    Hi,
    I had a car accident in 1980 and another in 1988 and have had the same problems as you. I have a plastic plate on my lower teeth that I wear all the time unless I'm eating or brushing my teeth. It does help. I had a lot of them , the hard one works the best. Have you been to a dentist ? They can help you with this. I know how you feel,as I have a repair to my tmj plate this week and was without it for a day and all hell broke lose. I am having all kinds of problems. It will calm down though. I put moist heat on the jaw area for 10 minutes on each side of the face. I also put the moist heat on my neck ,too. It does help. I hope this can help you a little. Remember we aren't doctors ,I can only tell you what works for me. Good luck and feel better.

    i have had been to many dentist, physicians since 1984. my problem started from a helicopter accident in military. i use the warm clothe method also. i will keep what you said in mind.

    it is interesting the plastic bite blocks you have.

    Why is your face blue? Is this a symptom of TMJ? Just kidding!! I have it too and it's really getting bad. It's to the point that it hurts every day now, constantly. When I eat, I can hear and feel the crunching sound in my right jaw joint. Sometimes I feel pain going through the joint like little bursts of lightning. I'm sure this is irreversible and due to the aging process? (my jaw has always cracked when I ate stuff like pizza)
