O MY GOD! i must have TMJ

6 years of searching i think i have severe TMJ

my symptoms were all classified as psychological as studies didnt show anything

my issue was SWALLWOING DIFFICULTY..noises when i swallow..neck cracking..back pain..pain and tenderness between ear and jaw..

I saw a gastro specialist and he said i have IBS ..

but reading a recent post here of the symptoms..I cant believe it..i feel i have TMJ..hope its not to late to fix.

My dentist gave me a splint years ago but it never corrected the issue..

Tonight i was explaining some symtoms to an online ENT specialist and this is what he came up with..

6 years of not being able to chew properly..swallow foods..meats..constant burping- i think this is not related though the burping or cud be the air trapped in my throat..

the eye symptoms i have too...

Im in Sydney Australia any excellent doctors or specialists u recommend.

I am so emotional and at the same tiem excited about this..6 years of torture..and its not in my head after all.....

anti depressants the works..nothing worked..they all said its all anxiety.

what a journey.

Re: O MY GOD! i must have TMJ

Welcome to HealthBoards!

There is a sticky thread at the top of the TMJ board that has a list of dentists all over the world that people have recommended.

If you are searching, it might help to seek out a Functional Orthodontist trained in neuromuscular dentistry or orofacial pain treatment.

I felt much the way you do when I finally figured out I had TMJD. I had undiagnosable ear stuffiness and pain though.
