Post Flying and TMJD

Hi, I posted a while back about 24/7 dizziness and possble TMJ? Still unsure whether my problem is inner ear or TMJ related...Does anyone know if flying can affect TMJ and how? After a long haul flight, I had pain in my jaw, cheek and teeth and have been rocking ever since (6 weeks). Can flying worsen TMJ? xxx

I flew from Hamilton to Ottawa a few weeks ago... and MAN, it sucked.

First off, the flight is only 30 mins and they don't even reach max altitude!

When I landed, it took my ears 3 hours to feel normal again. Damn ear fullness.

I did everything I could to keep my e-tubes popping...

I used to fly ALL of the time to, with no problems.

I'd say that flying can make your symtoms worse, but not the actual TMJ.
The search for a diagnosis is long and painful...

i agree on the fact its likely to make symptoms worse but not the underlying problem. i dont know if ive got TMj but my dentist thinks i might, and i did a 3 hour flight last week. it made my ears worse im sure and possibly my lightheadedness... i sometimes find it hard to tell because my symptoms fluctuate so much. hmm. damn being ill!
