Eddieray, Try ice &/or heat. My PT said to be very careful not to use TENs unit pads near jugular veins, so as long as you don't place then near that area and only use a short while it might be ok. Others may have more info. I have a small hand held battery operated (scalp) massager that I sometimes use on my TMJ. Praying for you!

Glad the other doc helped you, Eddie!!! Dilauded injections really can help. It's a derivative of Morphine so it should last a while. I hope you heal up really quickly and fully. Good luck!!

Sorry to hear about the jaw, and dismissive treatment by the one doc. Very glad you were seen elsewhere and got some help!
