Hi again so I’ve been diagnosed with facial athromyalgia by 2 maxillofacial specialists. The one said I will eventually need surgery in the right jaw joint. Is it normal to have tooth pain with this condition? The pains move from different teeth , they are like a zapping pain which comes and then goes, sometimes the front top teeth, and sometimes the upper left side, other times my molars I’m seeing a physiotherapist who has been dry needling the area on the right side, and also manipulating the muscles from inside my mouth which is incredibly painful. I’ve not yet had an MRI. Does anyone else have any experience with this? I was told that it is basically the same as TMJ disorder? I’m wanting to get an implant in my bottom right side, would this condition make it impossible to have an implant? I’m still without the ability to chew anything on the right side because of the missing premolar which I had extracted as it never settled after a replacement white filling was done. Any advice would be hugely appreciated. Thank you so much.
