Hello fellow TMJ sufferers, Has anyone out there, with anteriorly diplaced disks (or closed lock), tried to relieve their pain by receiving arthrocentesis and/or steroid injection (or any type of injection)?
I was very close to doing this, and convinced it would help, when I read some scary things on the internet. If anyone out there has had a steroid or any other injection (perhaps hyaluronate) done I'd really appreciate knowing how it went, if there were complications, and if it helped you open wider and not have as much pain. I hope everyone is finding some relief in whatever pain management techniques they are trying. We really need more research and successful treatments to be developed to help TMD sufferers.
Have a great day. - Kiki
