Re: Starting to think my sinus problem is TMJ instead!

This is quite an interesting theory as I have the exact same symptoms as you. And a concha bullosa and deviated septum.

I looked TMJ up and discovered the following; Bruxism has been shown to be a contributory factor in the majority of TMJ cases.

That's what I find so interesting. I have such bad Bruxism that I sometimes have to take muscle relaxants before I go to sleep and I've had lock jaw a few times. I always thought it was a side effect of the sinusitis but I suppose it could be the other way around.

Do you have Bruxism?
