UNBEARABLE... has anyone experienced nausea with TMJ?

I often feel really sick when I get TMJ flare ups. Has anyone else experienced this... and if so, how do you deal with it? I've taken lots of over the counter medications... Tums, Pepto Bismol, Mylanta... and even have an anti-nausea sample pack that doesn't seem to work.

Sometimes I feel like my nausea is caused by excessive saliva that I've had lately. But I'm just not sure.

Please help! This is becoming unbearable!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry! Are you having other symptoms when you get nauseous? Like headache pain? I don't have this symptom, but have become nauseous when the TMJ caused a particularly bad migraine. Nothing seemed to work either. The Tums, etc. is taken after you feel sick, or before as prevention?

hey yes I have felt really really sick almost to teh point of trying to be sick! I have foudn nothing has really helped and it will just pass. Keep your diet light and soft. You will often find its the pain meds that makes the nausea worse.

Re: UNBEARABLE... has anyone experienced nausea with TMJ?

Hey there,

I don't get nausea as such but when my earaches return like i may be standing there happy and i get a stab in my ear , my legs wobble , my heart beats and seriously my stomach feels sick like im going to throw up...

I know this is anxiety. .. as ive suffered so much through my earaches ordeals that i immediately go into panic mode....

and it hurts so so much .... do you think it may be a panic attack...

Get better! Much Love xo

Re: UNBEARABLE... has anyone experienced nausea with TMJ?

I had severe nausea and frequent vomiting for the first 2 years with tmj - what helped for me was seeing a good chiro - I was told a misaligned neck or c-spine can often cause this as can a displaced or mispositioned jaw by infringing on the airway or the c-spine itself. The excessive saliva is part of the body's response to the nausea.

The first chiro I went to for 18 mos really didn't do much for it. The next chiro I went to for about 7 months was a NUCCA chiro and he got the nausea to ease up and not be as intense - but I still had recurrences of it. My current chiro that I have been seeing for a year now however finally got it to go away - sometimes though I still get the sensation of being a bit "queasy" but it doesn't last long and I no longer drool or have the excessive saliva.

Re: UNBEARABLE... has anyone experienced nausea with TMJ?

I'll have to second Thelma-Louise though not as severe, I use to dry-heave. I still get slightly queasy sometimes, very rarely, but it's accompanied by the tightness of my throat. My voice is normally on the low side but during those times I realize that my voice is at a higher pitch. I also ran the tips of my fingers along the c-spine and I can feel it off center and rotated to the left. Maybe that'll help you narrow things down.

If it's got anything to do with your c-spine I doubt OTC medicine will be of much help. I heard heat packs or alternating cold with hot packs can help relax the supporting muscles. I've also done a tmj exercise that over the course of time sped up progress (tongue pressed up against roof of mouth) but now I have a "Madonna gap." An OTC nightguard helped and frequent nausea went away probably due to the increased airflow. I'll have to try the heat packs though. A couple of months ago, I would roll my eyes at these "exercises" but now I see that they really do help.

Exclamation Re: UNBEARABLE... has anyone experienced nausea with TMJ?

Hey there,

i have never suffered nausea with tmj , that sounds awful except when my earaches come and i feel sick as its so painful and i feel like im never going to get better ( but thats associated with panic attacks due to my pain)

But the thing i do have kind of which has improved was i had trouble alittle with balance when climbing stairs..?

Does anyone feel the same? it was only with stairs .. i had to cling to someones arm but never had nausea.. hope you get better.. You are in my thoughts
