Speech difficulty with TMJ?
Hi all, I've been having a slightly sore jaw and sore cheek muscles. This has disturbing my speaking capabilities. I have to labor to speak long, perfect sentences, after which, my face feels sore. (kind of the feeling after you do a set with weight, albeit without the lactic acid soreness) Can TMJ cause this? My family doctor suggested this might be the problem, and I'm going to see my dentist on Monday. There is a slight hitch in my jaw when I open it, but I don't see how it can cause this much trouble. Any input would be great. Thanks!
