    TMJ and strange sore throat

    I am 35 years old, from Italy.
    Since February I am dealing with a strange sore throat. It is not easy to exactly locate its origin, I would say somewhere at the base of the tongue on the right side spreading to the jaw, the occipital area (base of the skull), the sinus and the eye. Sometimes it results in a weirdand very anoying kind of headache.

    I am wondering if it is tmj relates because I have a cross bite in the same side of the pain and I remember that previuoulsy it sometimes happened to wake uo with a similar sore throat when during the nigh my jaw was pulled backward on the right. Maybe the disc is irritating some nerve?

    Do any other have similar symptoms?

    Thanks

    Re: TMJ and strange sore throat

    The pain you describe sounds like it could be TMJD. However, it also could be related to other things. If you don't have infection, sinus issues, allergy or other medical condition that may be causing your symptoms, then it is likely TMJD-related. Have you been evaluated by a medical doctor, prescribed antibiotics etc?

    What's about your crossbite though? Have you considered braces to correct it?

    Thank you for the reply.

    Yes I do already have taken antibiotics and did nothing.

    I am scheduled to see an oral pathologist and a gnathologist in september. I planned to do a MRI in order to rule out other things and than follow a direction to fix my bite.

    Interesting I noticed that if during the day I keep my jaw more centered the pain subsides, so I am convincere is alla due to TMD/TMJ.

    It probably is then. Sometimes it gets better on its own. If not, good luck with sorting it out!
