Dizziness?

I Have Been Told That Tmj Can Cause Dizziness, But I Have Also Been Told That It Can't. Does Anyone Else Have The Same Prob. I Should Add That My Dizziness Began After I Got Braces On And It Seems To Get Worse Every Time I Get My Braces Tightened. Thanks

Re: Dizziness?

well, I have dizziness w/ my TMJD, but I don't have braces...so, I can't help you on knowing if it's because of the braces...but I do know a lot of people that suffer from TMJD suffer from dizziness.

Re: Dizziness?

You will be dizzy or your balance will be off as the jaw joint is so close to the ear. The ear controls your balance. If you have swelling or inflamation around the jaw joints you will be dizzy.
If you have muscle spasms or tightness around the jaw joints which are near the ears, you will be dizzy.
If you have muscle spasms and tightness at the back of your head which is the sternocleidomastoid muscle, you will be dizzy.
When your jaw is out of alignment, you will be dizzy as there is no harmony with the ears and jaw.
It's that simple.
