Unexplained Headaches, Earaches, Ringing In The Ears?

Written by Wellness Club on July 8, 2008 – 10:19 pm -

  • Do you suffer from headaches, earaches, tenderness of the jaw muscles, or dull, aching facial pain?
  • Does your jaw lock or stray to one side when you open your mouth?
  • Do you have clicking or popping noises when you open and close your mouth?
  • Do you have ringing or a fullness in your ears?
  • Many people, especially as we age, develop unexplainable symptoms such as headaches, jaw pains, ringing in the ears (tinnitis) and other problems that are frequently written off by conventional medicine as "just getting old".

    Many doctors, unable to find a cause with lab tests or scans or other "billable" diagnostics will write prescriptions for "painkillers" or "muscle relaxants" and sadly advise their patient that "you’ll just have to live with this…"

    Well, you don’t have to "just live with it"!

    Recently we told you about an holistic dentist whom we have come to trust and respect for the safe removal of toxic mercury amalgams. (See our HealthBeat Article "How Can I Have Mercury Amalgams Safely Removed")

    Dr. Del Nichols is also very expert in the diagnosis and treatment of Temporomandibular Joint disorders – the very thing that often causes otherwise unexplained headaches and other problems.

    So, if you are suffering from any of the following symptoms:

    • Pain in or around the ear that may sometimes spread to the face.
    • Earaches, congestion or ringing in the ears.
    • Headaches, Neck and shoulder pain.
    • Clicking, popping or grating sounds when opening and closing the mouth.
    • Tender jaw muscles.
    • Tired jaws or pain when chewing.
    • Limited jaw opening or pain when you yawn, chew or open your mouth wide.
    • Jaw joints that don’t feel quite right – a feeling as if they are "locked, "stuck" or they "go out".
    • Dizziness or fainting.
    • Difficulty swallowing or closing teeth together.
    • Worn, cracked or sensitive teeth.
    • Facial pain or pain behind the eyes.
    • Numbness in the hands.
    • Back Pain.

    You need to consider whether you might have a Temporomandibular Joint disorder. More information on this subject and about how Dr. Del treats these problems can be found on our Temporomandibular Joint disorders web page.
