The clicking is back temporarily

I went out for lunch today and the click came back.  It looks like I somehow strained my jaw. The left side is reallly swollen and you can feel a bump where it hinges to the back of my head by my left ear.  This is really eerie as I have no idea how it all happened.

I did not hear it for the rest of the day, but when I open my mouth wide, it really hurts and there is a bulge on the left side of my face :-(.

the clicking is gone

I awoke this morning with the clicking.  I brushed my teeth then took a shower.

Now the clicking is gone!  That is good, but what the heck caused it?

my jaw is clicking

I awoke this morning and brushed without any issues.

On my way to work, I was eating a banana and I heard my left jaw click at the point just infront of my ears.  It was eerie and loud.  I called my Ortho and the Asst. says just to watch it and see if it stops.

All day it was awful when I ate.  It was so loud!!!!

Good grief what is going on.  My greatest fear is to have my mouth frozen open :-(.

I had a protein shake and a muffin as that would minimize the chewing, but i did have a Subway egg sandwich for lunch.  That was really hard with the chewing.

For dinner, I had some leftovers from the night before and the chewing was bad.

I hope this goes away...Will I need a headgear to correct it?

An adjustment at Week 175

 I had my adjustment today.  Now my teeth hurts.  No word when I'll be out of braces at all.  So the saga continues.
