Over the past 6 months I have developed tmj. I went to the dentist about it a few weeks ago and they said my wisdom teeth coming in and my overbite/stress is what's causing it. I've had terrible anxiety and OCD since I was like 5 years old, and it worsened with the concussion I got about a year ago. I can't open my mouth very wide, and when I do there is clicking and popping. No significant pain yet. I'm going to get a mouth guard and wisdom teeth taken out soon.
In the mean time last week all of a sudden half my body went numb for a second, but quickly it went away. This happened 2 or 3 times. Then the next day I noticed it felt a little different on that side, but I was hoping it was just anxiety and that it would go away. The next day I woke up and after walking around for like 5 minutes it came back almost full force, and 4 days later it still hasn't gone away. It's mostly in my left hand and foot, but it extends to about my elbow and knee. I felt a little bit in my face as well but I think I might have been imagining that. I was experiencing mild pain on the same side of my jaw as the numbness that week that it started, and some pain since then but not really. I also noticed my jaw was popping and clicking more at the time. It isn't a full numbness, I went to the doctor and they said no real weakness was there, just perceived weakness, meaning no MS or scary diseases. He also ruled out a pinched nerve because he pressed on a lot of different areas on my spine and neck and he said that would've made the symptoms worse if it was a pinched nerve. It's tingling and stuff also.
Has anyone ever experienced this before with tmj? I have no idea if it's related or not. I'm really scared ahhh
