How do you stop flare-ups?

Hi,

Does any one have any tip on how to stop or ease down a bad TMJ flare-up? I had a long (12 hour) car journey last Sunday and both my TMJ and my ATN seem to have gone really bad since then. I'm drinking plenty of herbal tea, which seems to help temporarily, but my neck, cheek and jaw are still pretty swollen.

Thanks for any advice and hope everyone is doing ok today!
