I know this is an old thread, but found it interesting that someone else has had the same experience. Dental extras and confirmation by an oral surgeon provided the totally unexpected announcement that both sides of my jaw are so thin they will collapse. When I asked? Could be tomorrow ... could be a few years. That was 18 months ago. I call it the "flavor of the week." There is ALWAYS something. My brain can no longer grasp it.Hi all.
I have actually found how to do my own thread lol, haven't been able to find it.
Anyway. I Was sent to the maxi filo clinic for my jaw last week and found out that my jaw is wearing away.
I was shown my X-ray and had a shock to see part of my jaw bone wasn't there. Since I've had lupus, I have always had problems with my jaw locking and being very painful , along with my fingers and thumbs they always lock too.
Could this be because of my lupus or I now have RA (year)and fibro since March. Does anyone have this problem or had this problem, and what treatment there is for it.
Keep safe all
