Re: Three easy question for you tmj veterans
I'm really not sure the answers are as easy as you think. There are so many different manifestations of TMJD symptoms that it can be difficult to tell.
I do have a history of tmjd, allergies, asthma and sinus problems.
Most of what you describe really doesn't sound like classic tmjd. The swelling under the ears might. I know I had some when my muscles were in constant spasm from the tmjd.
The burning in the sinus could be a sinus infection, allergies, or possibly acid reflux. I've had all 3 happen to me in the past. In fact when I got my acid reflux under control, I had a significant decrease in sinus problems.
Are you running a humidifier while you sleep at night? That could be a significant help. Nasal saline sprays may help as well.
Asthma, Allergies, severe LPR/GERD, Anemia, TMJD, Hearing Loss, Ulnar Impaction Syndrome, Shoulder Impingement--both shoulders, Benign Joint Hypermobility, possible Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
