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?
