Autoimmune diseases attack the body causing much pain and poorer sleep. When this happens, the body reflexively responds by clenching and grinding up to 900 pounds per square inch. Chewing elicits only 68 PSI. As it is, the autoimmune patient is hypersensitive to pain. Consequently, this increases the clench/grind syndrome.
Ortho Stop TMJ Treatment
Orthostop is designed to intercede this clench/grind phenomenon dramatically and help the autoimmune patient cope with their hypersensitivity to pain. Sleep and tolerance to this pain should be better.
In addition to Fibromyalgia, the following autoimmune diseases can play a part in an increase in the clench/grind syndrome:
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Type 1 diabetes
• Multiple sclerosis
• Celiac disease
• Alopecia areata
• Hashimoto's disease
• Addison disease
• Graves' disease
• Sjogren's syndrome
• Myasthenia gravis
So, if you're wondering how to treat TMJ issues, look no further. Ortho Stop is your best option.
Correlation between Lupus and TMJ
Lupus and other autoimmune diseases play havoc with your pain threshold. Your brain will try to compensate by clenching and grinding to alleviate the pain created by the autoimmune diseases.
