Pain Throughout The Body, Accompanied By Swelling, Redness, And Even Balance Disorders?
I have chronic tmj. During recovery whether it is using a dental plate or good therapy with yoga. I still feel very painful aches all over the body be it joints or skin (such as inflammation of the reddish) sometimes swollen. From foot to head. From all the pain that feels the most feet where I can not stand long. My balance is disturbed … Do I have other diseases besides TMJ?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
TMJ is an extension of the temporomandibular junction (temporomandibular joint) or more commonly called the jaw joint. TMJ is not a disease. Therefore, it is not quite right if you call your condition a chronic TMJ. It should be clarified, exactly what kind of interference with TMJ are you experiencing? Is it dislocation, inflammation, crack, or what?
Pain in almost the whole body, accompanied by swelling, redness, and even balance disorders are not really typical symptoms of TMJ disorders. More likely, this complaint arises for other reasons, for example:
Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain that appears accompanied by impaired memory, mood, stamina, and also sleep)
Peripheral neuropathy (peripheral nerve damage)
Rheumatoid arthritis (arthritis due to autoimmune disorders)
Diabetes (increased blood sugar due to lack of insulin production, or body resistance to insulin work)
Others, for example viral or bacterial infections, lupus, nerve nerve, psychosomatic disorders, vascular disorders, and many other possibilities
Your complaints are very nonspecific in reference to a particular disease. Therefore, in order to ascertain the cause, it is necessary to conduct a physical examination or supporting tests, such as laboratories, X-rays, electromyography, and so on. Better, you check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist so that your condition is handled properly according to the cause huh ..
If indeed you have a problem with TMJ, take medication regularly as advised by your doctor. Not only that, also resolve your current complaint with the following steps:
Take pain relievers, such as paracetamol, when pain is disruptive
Do not carelessly massage, massage, or give any treatment to the body that feels uncomfortable, without first consulting a doctor
Get more rest
Exercise also more regularly
Calm your heart and mind, don't be too sad, stressed, let alone to panic excessively
Eat regularly balanced nutritious food
Live a healthy lifestyle, don't smoke, let alone consume alcohol and drugs
Hope this helps ...
