My husband has painful contractions of the muscles under his chin; he is constantly fighting his mouth flopping open. He also has numbness up one jaw and some in his tongue. He has been told that his temporomandibular joint does not come together properly, but that's not the reason for his contractions. He had a molar pulled last year in a very rough procedure, during which t.he oral surgeon broke the tooth next to that molar. Now he has a bridge in that is causing pain. He has been to an orofacial pain clinic at a leading university, an internist, a neurologist, two dentists, another oral surgeon, and a perodontist. None of them seem to know what is causing the contractions and pain. Has anone else had a similar experience?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
