Do I have TMD?

I have a question for you: I think I have TMD because I have migraines and pain in ears and when I open and close my mouth I feel painful "clicks". However, my MRI test shows I did not have any problem in the joint. The doctor said that the problem is probably a muscular problem and sent me to do EMG testing.
I also have Overbite and I grind my teeth at night. I did physical therapy and chiropractics, but nothing helped.
I beg you to help me - I do not know what I'm going through and I'm suffering for six years

Re: Do I have TMD?

Are you seeing someone trained specifically to treat TMJ issues?

I had an MRI that was read "Normal" by the radiologist. My TMJ specialist told me that the range of normal for readings is extremely wide and you can have disc slippage even with a normal reading. In looking at the MRI pictures with my orthodontist, you can see where the discs are out of place even with the normal reading. It might be worth consulting another specialist to review your MRI results if you really think you are having problems. Also, my tmj dentist told me that very few places can do a really good MRI of the TMJ area. Evidently it is very specialized and tough to do. I drove to an MRI center over an hour away to have mine done.
