Menopausal, have swollen neck tissues, sleeping issues, several festoons, TMJ, freezing in extremities, tiredness. Remedy?

I am 54 years old, female, Hispanic, Menopausal, and I have several unattended ailments, one being swollen neck tissues, severe festoons, do not sleep well, stay up very late for many years, and I also have other problems, like TMJ , uneven jaws, and recent severe jaw pain, I am feeling cold in my extremities, and I always feel tired. I do not know where to begin, I am very overwhelmed because my dentist three months ago, told me I need a root canal , and then to make things worse, his assistant, told me to have my wisdom tooth removed, I just refuse to do anything unitl I take the medical conditions that are of priority. Thanks for listening to this lengthy query.

Hello and welcome,
First of all let me tell you that please do not ignore getting dental treatments done.
If left untreated,it can affect your systemic health too.
Get your wisdom teeth extracted.
Tooth which is decayed has to be restored/root canal treated.
Your tmj has to be examined.
Avoid mouth opening too widely.
Tmj has to be immobilized for a while.
Maintain good oral hygiene.

Please do visit your dentist for further procedures.
Hope this helps.
