hey laura

i was having quite a few cortisone injections last year - it usual took about 3 days to kick in. Apparantly it can make you feel worse for a day or so which is most annoying!

i saw the maxillofacial surgeon a couple of years ago about my jaw as i was having problems having dentistry work done cos it ached so much keeping my mouth open. I had arthritis in the jaw but it was not active and had not caused damage so there was nothing they could do.

However, I have been having a lot of restless nights lately (combination of bad back after lifting the lump that is my one year old baby and him teething and keeping me awake at night). I'm getting a little stressed with the lack of sleep and have noticed that i am tensing my body and clenching my teeth - my jaw aches in the morning as a result.

Will you let us know how you get on re your jaw, it'd be interesting to know what the dentist says.

bless you laura, i know exactly how it feels when your jaw is so painful although, thankfully for me, i'm having no problems at the mo!! They'd talked about a night guard for me but said mine wasn't so bad that it would make too much difference. Also, it was going to cost me 200 which i just didn't have.

I hope you get sorted soon hun
