TMJ vs Multiple Sclerosis

What's the difference? I'm worried about which I have. The symptoms are very similar, even though I seem to have about 80-90% of TMJ symptoms, although my jaw doesn't lock.

Re: TMJ vs Multiple Sclerosis

Good question Mike. I've had MS for 15 years and I've had problems with my ear ringing and feeling full for several years. I have also had facial numbness, difficulty talking and lip quivering for several years. Now 3 months ago they said I have TMJ because of my new denture being too high.All my face muscles and neck muscles started spasms. My TMJ joint has never cracked. I know I did not have TMJ before. So I like you have to quest this. This started with ear pain for me and I went to a redi care to get an antibiotic and he pressed real hard on my TMJ joints and told me to open my mouth real wide and it really hurt and seems since then it's been hurting. I'm not sure whats what either. I may of developed a mild TMJ problem and maybe the MS exacerbated it- don't know.

Re: TMJ vs Multiple Sclerosis

But what is the difference? Are there noticeable differences? I doubt I have MS but I was just wondering how to tell.
