I've had ongoing ear pain for a year and pretty much everything I've tried (meds, alternative treatments, ruled out neurological problems) hasn't worked. I got a second opinion for TMD and the orthodontist wants me to get a TMJ MRI. I've had an MRI of my temporomandibular bone but not my joint. I know someone who had this scan and said it's not terribly fun (not that scans are supposed to be fun). Apparently, they had to use a giant mouthpiece for him. I can't seem to find any info on the web about this type of scan. Anyone have any information or advice to share?
