Question Think this is TMJ maybe?

I also posted this in the "describe your symptoms" thread, but I would like some feedback if anyone has any thoughts on this.

I don't know yet if I have TMJ. Haven't been diagnosed with it but I'm suspecting it. Here's my problems, none of them are really that bad except the last one.

*Recent headaches-I usually NEVER get headaches
*Teeth clenched tightly when sleeping
*Slightly sore jaw
*Slight fullness in ears
*Slight ringing in ears
*Back teeth sort of sore
*Neck and shoulders tight with occasional twinges of pain
*New symptom today: When jaw is opened to fullest I hear a grinding noise (like pop rocks)

but the biggest problem so far...

*A lump feeling or clicking on one side of my throat which happens only when I am swallowing fairly often. Not when I eat food or drink, but only when I swallow dry or swallow saliva. It doesn't hurt per se, but it doesn't feel very comfortable either.

Hi There,

Yes, all of the symptoms that you describe are those of TMJD. I'd get in to see a dentist/specialist and get a diagnosis. Good Luck.

lastoria - since you said that you never get headaches, i'd recommend going to a neurologist just to rule out anything else that could be causing it.. and to be on the safe side.

also, your symptoms seem to be TMJD related, but i'd get a diagnosis first, and to rule out anything else that can mimic TMJD symptoms.

take care,

- saaraah.
