    Swallowing difficulties?

    Does anyone with TMJ else experience difficulties swallowing?

    Since my bilateral disc derangements, my tongue has felt oddly large for my mouth and I have difficulty swallowing with a clicking sound that comes on and off in my throat. I've only had TMJ for a few months. My throat has also started to look swollen (along with the fluid swelling on my face ever since I got TMJ), even my neck muscles are bulking and there's a line (ligament?) that's jutting out all the way down to my collarbone that never jutted out before.

    I'm going to be having TMJ disc plication surgery in another 2.5 months, but I'm hoping these aren't permanent changes in the position of my hyoid bone!

    Can the hyoid bone position literally change within 5 months, permanently?

    Thanks in advance for all responses!
