Does this sound like tmj?

I see my dentist regularly and get xrays, etc. Nothing has shown up wrong with my teeth, yet the lower back one often feels odd. It feels like a pressure under it, and my throat back there feels swollen. As I said, Ive had regular xrays and even a CT scan. So can tmj cause this type of sensation? My jaw pops and I have some other symptoms. I just wondered if this was part of it. Thanks.

It does definitely sound like tmj. I always get a massive pressure feeling and alot of pain right where my bottom wisdom teeth used to be. And I always get bad sore throats right at the back of the throat. Plus your jaw pops, I have had tmj for years and I think you should mention it to your dentist as soon as possible.

Jaw popping and clicking are definitely a sign of "tmj." Normal "tmj" function does not include clicking or popping.
