The Symptoms Of TMJ - Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

Temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) is a condition that affects the jaw joint and surrounding muscles. Some common symptoms of TMJ include:

  1. Pain in the jaw joint: This can feel like a dull or sharp pain in the jaw, face, or neck, and can be made worse by chewing, talking, or yawning.

  2. Limited jaw movement: People with TMJ may have difficulty opening their mouth wide or moving their jaw from side to side.

  3. Popping or clicking in the jaw: A popping or clicking sound in the jaw can be a sign of TMJ and can be accompanied by pain or discomfort.

  4. Tension headaches and/or migraines: People with TMJ may experience frequent tension headaches, which can feel like a tight band around the head.

  5. Ear pain: Pain or discomfort in the ear can be a symptom of TMJ, even though the pain is not coming from the ear itself.

  6. Dizziness or ringing in the ears: Some people with TMJ may experience dizziness or ringing in the ears, which can be a result of the jaw misalignment affecting the inner ear.

  7. Lockjaw: In severe cases of TMJ, the jaw may become locked or stuck in a particular position, making it difficult to open or close the mouth.

  8. These symptoms can vary in severity and duration, and not everyone with TMJ will experience the same symptoms. If you are experiencing symptoms of TMJ, it's important to see a healthcare provider for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
