Re: TMJ and Swollen Lymph Nodes???
In its purest sense tmj or tmd stands for tempormandibular joint or temporamandibular dysfunction. It is generally or loosely characterized as jaw and facial muscle pain due to poorly positioned tm joints, displaced discs or malocclusion and an imbalanced bite. For a full list of symptoms there is a sticky post at the top of this forum. The more common symptoms are clenching or grinding teeth, ear aches, head aches, tooth sensitivity, swollen glands, a feeling of something in the throat, jaw pain or dull ache and facial muscle fatigue or tiredness.
