TMJ and speech difficulty

Since developing TMJ in May I seem to be having difficulty with my speech. It's only slightly impaired but I find it worrying and a cause of anxiety.

Sometimes my tongue feels slightly 'paralysed' and I can't seem to pronounce words as I would like to.

I am not in pain but the jaw joint often feels a but numb.

Do others experience speech difficulty with TMJ?

Smile Re: TMJ and speech difficulty

Hi Paul Rio

I've had TMJ for ten years now. In the last 4 years I've suffered with speech problems and its gotten worse to the point it's hard to understand what i'm saying. Pain is the main reason for the difficulty I'm having with my speech. You should have an MRI scan to check your discs haven't moved in the joint. I know it can be depressing get it checked before it gets worse
