Thanks!.......I know all of the symptoms of TMJ but my problem is it's hard for me to differintiate between what is coming from chronic post surgical neck muscle pain and TMJ. I have been blaming this on my cervical fusion for almost 2 years even though I knew I had TMJ....I guess it's a lot worse than I thought. I also read that certain surgeries can make TMJ worse. I also do not have much jaw pain or the more typical symptoms of TMJ so that also made me wonder. I appreciate your response.
