Tmj Board?
0

5 posts in this topic

I don't know if this is a related disorder (isn't everything related to celiac? ha ha) but I was wondering if anyone knows of a good TMJ forum/message board. By good, I mean like this one -- where people are posting all the time, and not like the TMJ boards that I've seen that nobody has posted on since 2003. I'm being driven nuts by TMJ issues lately...

Thanks in advance.

Hi Marie, My daughter has tmj disorder, and after years of just not feeling well we took the leap and eliminated gluten from her diet. We are both shocked at the difference it has made in her life. I think what surprised us the most is how it impacted her tmj disorder. Her pain levels are down, as well as her stress levels (and believe me, stress plays a huge role in tmj disorder).  I have a very active facebook page called TMJ Hope (4000 members) please feel free to join us. Thank you to the admins of this page, until recently I didn't understand how widespread celiac and gluten intolerance is, and the impact it has on lives.

I'm 17 and since I started having problems problems with celiac (1 year ago) I've had problems with TMJ. I think just the stress celiac puts on our bodies causes these problems. But I saw a dentist, and was given a bite gaurd. It's helped by reducing the pain by about 50%. I didn't think it was at first But mine is caused mostly by grinding/clenching of my teeth while I sleep. I also see a message therapist to help relax my jaw area, which makes it much better!!

I also have TMJ and did not think about the relation, massage seems to help, I don't think I have been gluten free long enough to illicit a difference yet, but I will pay closer attention now.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
