Low energy, memory problems as a side effect of the jaw, history of dislocated disc. Could this be due to a pinched nerve?

I have has a dislocated disc for 14 years I have been through every EMT, therapist acupuncture , specialist and chiropractor out there. The dentist says I need some new mouthguard with some kind of bump in it.I have memory problems as a side effect from my jaw, also I have extremely low energy and do not socialize, because I am always tired. I know these are conditions that stem from my jaw because every once in a while I get this kind of euphoria like my jaw has released something or open up some blood flow or nerve to allow me to be happy. I know this sounds confusing, but thats the only way I can explain it. Could it be I have a pinched nerve or would arthosentisis help? My current specialized dentist does not think so and I know he does not understand about the memory problems I am having? How do I convince someone of these symptoms and who do I go see? No one gets it. Should I see a nerologist? Its frustrating. Could my jaw be obstructing something thats talking to my brain?

thanks for your query, i have gone through your query, the dislocated disc has no permanent treatment splints might help to some extent but since you are telling since 14years you have this problem you can get an MRI done and see the movements and postion of the disc in closed and open mouth can go for orthocentesis (intraraarticular lavage with autologous blood or saline) or surgical treatment...but the prognosis can not be predicted.. consult a oral maxillofacial surgeon and physician....but i would like to suggest do not take stress or tension because it aggravates tmj problems again which in turn gives tension so try to be cool and consult psychologist for counseling...tmj disorder has nothing to with memory problem....i hope my answer will help you... take care..
with regards
