Does this happen to anyone else? The swelling in my face from what I suspected was the parotid gland (still not sure...maybe arthritis? maybe from clenching?) had gone down, but my jaw, teeth and ear were still hurting intensely. Two nights ago I took TM's advice on what she does for bruxism on another thread and took a muscle relaxer. I took flexeril 10mg. It makes me sleep. A lot. I took it last night, too. No more pain in my jaw, but I am just so blah. I don't want to do anything. Literally. Don't want to clean, don't want to shower, don't want to go anywhere, don't want to read, don't want to watch tv, don't want to be on the computer, don't want to talk to anyone, don't want the animals near me. I was going to take it tonight, except cut it in half, but I just can't stand this feeling. I was feeling so wonderful - emotionally - all week, but yesterday and today are horrible. The only difference is the flexeril. Anyone else notice this on flexeril?
