My jaw can't open wide
so a few days ago my jaw started hurting whenever i opened it wide to yawn or get food in my mouth. before my right side of my jaw would click and the doctors said it was no big deal because there was no pain. and when the pain startted coming and i couldn't open my mouth wide at first i thought like my jaw just clicked out of place so i just massaged the side and it was better and then it was like that for a few days but i thought it was no big deal. but this morning when i woke up the pain was there for the whole day. although
it wouldn't hurt when my mouth was closed or was talking when i opened it more it would hurt. i tried doing the 2finger thing where you said if i could fit 2 fingers it was less serious i could do it but it was a little painful. i have an appointment with my dentist tomorrow to see it and stuff but i'm just worried that i'm going to have surgery or something which i deffinetly don't want. i looked everything up on the computer and i saw you can put a splint but i have a retainer in my mouth like invisalign so i'm worried that i won't be able to do it cause of my retainer. and can you still eat with a splint? so yeah that's my situation and if you have any advice i'd appreciate it.
