    jaw popping and horrible "sinus" headaches

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this particular board. I've had TMJ for as long as I can remember and I'm finally fed up.

    The most obvious symptom is how my jaw pops: it pops on the left side about 2 seconds before it pops out on the right side. I always have neck pain... tension and knots in my neck and shoulders. I get headaches where there is pressure behind one eye and really bad pain underneath my eye... and the headaches are unbearable, like migraines. I also clench my jaw and grind my teeth at night.

    I haven't seen a Dr about this problem in about 8 years, and then it was just an orthodonist. What kind of Dr. should I go see? I most worried about how my jaw pops, as I assume that is whats causing the other symptoms. Would they have to break my jaw? I don't know if I could go through that.

    Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

    I also have jaw popping on the right side - but my dentist told me it's cartilage slipping in that TM joint. I saw a specialist for orofacial pain/TMJ disorders who made me a splint to wear which has helped. I also had muscle spasms in my neck & shoulder which have gradually cleared up. It takes time.
