how can you tell if you have arthritis in your jaw? is there anyway to tell? also, is 18 too young to have arthritis in the jaw joint?

It's not a question but a lesson learned in time

Re: arthritis

I think your a little young to have arthritis in your joint- but they can tell by x-rays.

Re: arthritis

when i had my mri 5 years ago [i was 18], my TMJs were already arthritic. mris and xrays show if you have arthritis - usually, the condyles are flattened or peaked, which indicates articular changes.

Re: arthritis

I was diagnosed with arthritis when I was 16. It took a few years to reach my jaw, but that's definitely part of my tmj problems.
