Hello Natasha, Thank you for the question.
The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is a joint that connects the jawbone with the temples located around the front of the ear. TMJ disorders can cause the following complaints:
pain in the jaw joints, neck, and shoulders when chewing, opening the mouth wide, or speaking difficult to open the mouth because the jaw feels locked difficult to uncover suddenly sounds when you open and close the mouth swelling on one side of the face This condition is most likely not causing your other complaints. Other complaints that you submit can be caused by a viral / bacterial infection, iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, a compromised immune system, and others. If this complaint is very annoying, you should immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. Without a doctor's examination, the doctor cannot determine the right treatment for you.
In the meantime, please do the following suggestions:
avoid the consumption of spicy foods and coffee You can eat soft foods so as not to cause pain in canker sores You maintain dental hygiene by brushing your teeth regularly using antiseptic mouthwash or gargling with warm water mixed with salt multiply water consumption continue to consume the medicine recommended by the doctor to overcome your TMJ disorders. Avoid chewing hard foods. You can consume food after cutting it into pieces to prevent chewing pain. Hopefully this information is useful.
