Post is this tmj?

for the past week, i have been experiencing a bitter and burning sensation inside my mouth...sometimes i get headaches and the right portion of my head gets all the pain, from the neck-jaw area. it goes away but sometimes i begin to wonder what it is thats causing it. also i get a lockjaw sometimes this feeling that i always have to open my mouth because i feel my jaw is locking up. could this be symptoms of tmj? looking forward to your replies

Hey Dirk,
Welcome to the board!!!

I am no expert but it appears that you may have tmj. The symptoms taht you mentioned are felt throughout this board. I also suffer from a locked jaw. Talk about no fun!
If I were you I would go see your general dentist so he can properly diagnose you and refer you to a tmj specialist.
Do you hear any clicking or popping in your jaw/joints/ears? Do you grind or clench your teeth? Do you wake up and feel like you have been through the wringer from the shoulders and up?

A bitter taste in your mouth could be from an infected tooth. That is a common symptom. Also trismus or not being able to open the mouth wide is also another symptom of an infected tooth. I would check with my dentist to rule out an infected or abscessed tooth.
