Question Throat problems related to TMJ

I'd be interested in finding out about some of the throat problems that can occur with TMJ; e.g. difficulty swallowing, feeling of a 'click' when swallowing, feeling a small 'snapping' sensation, general throat discomfort, etc. Does anyone know how the jaw and neck muscles come into play in regarding any of this? Can the hyoid be affected? Any information is appreciated.

Hi, I'm new to this board as well, but most of my pain is in my face.
Since I'm a singer, I am noticing more trouble with my throat because the motions necessary for singing really aggravates my TMJ and when the muscles become inflamed, it constricts around my larynx. I end up very hoarse and in a lot of pain.

so I have throat pain as well.

i find myself constantly clearing my throat, and have a lump at the back of my throat that doesn't seem to go away when i swallow.

and difficulty swallowing... i have a severe problem in that area, but it could be related to something else. i need to have that checked out asap, because it could be a number of different serious conditions.

as for all the noises i hear when i swallow... i can't tell if they are normal or not, i mean i have had this for so long that i don't know if normal people hear the same noises or what, because it's not something i took note of before TMJ.
