Re: My Ridiculous 6 Year Health Problem: So The Jaw Is Responsible?

It's called TMJ and it absolutely can be the cause. There could also be an underlying problem with the joint itself / bone structure. Hard to say what the course of action would be, but surgery would be the last option. I have it myself, but have not had any treatment for it (it doesn't bother me to the extent you are having with it). My dentist told me I had it a few years ago when he did an evaluation of my jaw.
