I know I have a regular popping and clunking when I open to a certain point and close. That is my disc reducing. This clicking is kinda different. It clicks when I talk--making certain sounds usually. I don't have to open my mouth any wider, it's like when my tongue moves a certain way it causes the clicks. Also, sometimes when I just swallow with my mouth closed. I am guessing it is the condyle rolling over scar tissue or something, as we don't think the disc is there--we think it is anteriorly displaced.
I could be wrong, though. I know other people have had this. I just don't know if it will go away if the disc is recaptured, or if it is something I will have to live with forever. Also, I am wondering if the inflammation in my joint could be causing it.
It doesn't do it ALL the time, but it does it alot.
Thanks so much for the help. I hope you are doing better.
