Hi I'm jannelle. I am a self employed 23 years old girl sufferring fromTemporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJD)in other words my the joint that connects my jaw and skull are locking making it hard to open and close my mouth. I have no insurance which covers this kind of medical treatment and it is really expensive.
It started when I was singing, I really love to aing but then the end of my jaw and skull began to pop, since then I rarely sing becausee it hurts a lot. I can't even open my mouth wide and when I smile my the right side of my jaw joint pops. I am also afraid to yawn because my jaw might lock. I experienced it few times and I was scary.
I had and xray and the dentist told me that dental braces can still fix it but if later and i it becomes more severe a surgery might be needed, it will be more expensive and I don't want to reach that point.
Please help me smile and sing again any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!
