Question tmj question

i've been wondering if i have tmj since my jaw pops some, feeling of a pull ear on left side and i've been having headaches..i also clench alot too...went to my regular doctor and said she didnt think i had tmj since my headaches started at the back of my neck towards the front and my entired head hurt..she said i'd have pain near my jaw area...think the headaches are from stress which is possible since i'm under alot of stress these days with work!
have been wondering if maybe my one last wisdom tooth on the lower left side could be casuing my problems?

Re: tmj question

You might want to check with your dentist. I'm having problems on the right side of my face and I still have all of my widsom teeth. This is something I did not even think about. I go to the dentist in a couple of weeks and I'm going to have him check my widsom teeth also. My husband had a friend who kept having headaches and it turned out to be his widsom teeth.
Good luck to you.

Re: tmj question

My TMJ headaches start from the back of my head also. Stress held in the shoulders leads to stress in the neck...leads to stress in the jaw...this is how my doc explained it to me. Makes a lot of sense to me.

When you clench your jaw, feel around to the muscles on your head that tighten when you do this. You will notice them especially around your temples. There is every reason for you to have a headache all over your head.

There are of course many other reasons for headaches, but that is how I experience mine.

Good luck!
