How to Treat TMJ in Fibromyalgia
Treatments for TMJ in fibromyalgia sufferers do not typically interfere with the patient’s existing fibromyalgia treatments. These conditions can be addressed separately.
Some of the most common treatments include avoiding excessive movement of the jaw. This requires you to stop yawning and chewing gum. In some cases, doctors or dentists may recommend surgery.
There are also various exercises that may help improve the condition of your temporomandibular joints. However, the exact treatment can vary between patients. The best approach is to work with your doctor to explore TMJ exercises and other non-invasive treatments.
