Jaw clicking and problems

Well ive had this clicking whenever i open and close my mouth for a while now. It caused no pain at all so i had no worries and didnt see a dentist about it.

For some reason ive woken up this morning to find that its sort of locked and when i try to open my mouth to its full extent, i get pain on the right hand side.

Anybody know whats causing this?

Thanks a lot

Re: Jaw clicking and problems

It sounds like a temperomandibular problem. There is a forum dedicated to this on here. I had a similar thing and had to get a protective gum shield to stop me grinding my teeth at night.

Re: Jaw clicking and problems

That is TMJ for sure. I was diagnosed in February. There is a forum here for it and also there is a great site called TMJ Friends which I am a member of. Do a google search for it. Everyone there is extremely kind and helpful. I would seek treatment for your TMJ asap. It is not a fun thing to have especially when it creates daily chronic pain.
