symptoms. doctors. help!

I'm going to a dentist this week for an appointment because I think I may have TMJ. These are some symptoms I've experienced in recent times.

Random ear popping, fullness of ears, neck and shoulder pain, jaw pain, dizziness, uncomfortable bite.

I was diagnosed with panic disorder 2 months ago and I've always been an anxious person. I bite the skin around my fingernails. Also I've been told that I grind my teeth at night sometimes. I clench my jaw a lot too because of the anxiety.

Does anyone know of any good TMJ specialists on Long Island? Only post the names and town please. Thanks so much!

There's one posted on the great dr thread - although I have never been to him myself. Good Luck.

Re: symptoms. doctors. help!

dodedoo, do you have any popping or clicking of the jaw? Your symptoms seem like a lot of mine, and I also have panic disorder. But I don't have popping or clicking of the jaw, so my dentist, doctor and ENT say I don't have TMJ. My tongue also hurts and feels swollen on that side. Does yours?

sometimes my jaw does click when i open it too wide or something. my jaw just feels very uncomfortable. i used to be able to open my mouth a lot wider. i can't believe they said you don't have tmj. what did they tell you that they think it might be?

Boy ear and neck problems are my worst symptoms, I would not rule out tmj with your symptoms.

They didn't tell me what I have. Just chalked it up to my anxiety problems and brushed me off. I have another dentist apt tomorrow. I'm going to see if he'll do an x-ray this time!
