Have myofacial pain syndrome, tremors, headache, TMJ. Taking Oxycodone and Tramadol

I was in an accident where a ball struck me in the head/ 2007. I have myofacial pain syndrome , tremors, severe headaches; TMJ/TMD. Several specialists have diagnosed the TMJ/TMD. I have a prosthetic which replaces some teeth. I grind my teeth. In order to adjust the bite, all of my teeth have been ground down. I am on Oxycodone and Tramadol along with Amrix and other meds. The headaches have kept me in bed since Christmas Eve. I went to a new dentist and he said I have ALL of the markers for TMJ (the worse he s ever seen). Suggested a new mouth splint . Candida , more cavities. Depression is severe. Fibromyalgia is raging along with chronic fatigue. Soft foods or liquid only. Hate to eat. Only talk when I have to. Live with pain & suffering everyday. Is there a clinic where I can go for help?

Thanks for writing to us.
You need to attend a pain clinic to take care of the acute pain that you are having. Taking oral muscle relaxants will also help with your symptoms. You can also consider going for some stretching exercises.
