    TMJD with Dysphagia

    Hello All,

    I am a TMJD sufferer who has had dysphagia and my throat still flares up. I am posting this to see how many people out there have experienced the same symptoms and if anyone knows where I can find information on the connection of TMJD and dysphagia. I have been diagnosed with malocclusion, my jaw shifts to the left, and I have upper back and neck pain. I also have headaches as well as pain at the back of my head. Even my facial muscles have felt “off” for some time. This happened following orthodontic treatment where my orthodontist used several TADs and it resulted in my jaw shifting to the left. I did not have bite problems prior to treatment. About a year ago I had a few weeks of difficulty swallowing (dysphagia). This happened right after I started noticing grinding noises in my TMJ on opening. It felt like I had pulled a muscle in the back of my throat. My throat has been inflamed ever since and I still have flare ups and a sore throat. My doctor has done throat swabs which have come back negative and I have never had a problem with acid reflux. I am trying to find a doctor to fix my malocclusion, but I am also trying to figure out what is causing the sore throat. Has anyone had TMJD with dysphagia? Does anyone know of any studies and/or published material that I can reference? I am asking because most dentists refuse to acknowledge that there is any link between TMJD and dysphagia. Any and all information would be helpful.
