Tanyak55, TMJD definitely can cause dizziness, this is widely recognized, if you have TMJD it could could be causing your symptoms (other illnesses also can cause them I understand, but for me anyway these are not the cause). Muscle spasms starting in the tm joint can travel right down to your feet, they can compress the nerves and cause numbness also, and the back and neck tension and strain. I've had similar symptoms to yours right down my body, due to my jaw spasming. Gentle stretching, using heat or ice, showering in very hot water, resting (not overusing the muscles partic in the neck and shoulders, not carrying much or doing repetitive arm work), can all help, I want to learn how to stretch and relax myself together with trying to regain balance for my tm joint.
