Any insight on this please?!?!?

Hello everyone, My name is Danielle.

About 2 years ago, the left side of my jaw started making light clicking noises when I would open it all the way. It wasn't a big deal so I didn't think much of it.

Well now, it pops very loud, but doesn't hurt when it pops. It does it first thing in the AM when I wake up, and periodically during the day. Friday night, when I was at the movies, I ate a lot of Sour Patch Kids. That night my jaw started aching (left side) and I thought it would go away by morning.

Sunday night, it still hurts. And I feel a hard slightly sore lump next to my ear. Im assuming thats inflammation.

I do have impacted wisdom teeth, but my dentist hasnt said anything about possible TMJ from the teeth.

Does this sound like a case of TMJ or just from the wisdom teeth?

THANKS

You do have symptoms of tmj disorders. If you still
feel jaw pain after a week, you might want to go see a tmj
specialist.

Do you grind your teeth at night?
