anyone have tmj worse when sitting


my tmj is worse when i sit I am not sure if it is because of posture or because of all the tight muscles pulling on my joint when sitting..does anyone else have this..

i was doing well with night gaurd and 10mg of amitripiline which i went of cause of severe water retention!! but it certainly took the pain away..but now its back which is good in a way because i new the amitripiline was just masking the problem not fixing i am flying 1.5hrs to see a nueromuscular dentist for heaps of tests and a 24 hr repositioning splint. i emailed him and he said that my symptosm definalty seem to be related to my bite and jaw being not aligned.........i no i have a disc issue cause of the popping and cracking etc........anyway he seems very caring and knowledgable having lectured around the world on TMJ and his procedure is the phase 1 and 2 type thingy.

Re: anyone have tmj worse when sitting

yes, I have noticed it, too, sitting makes it worse....
now I'm trying to find healthy postures for sitting ang standing.... in certain potitions my jaw clicks, in others, it doesn't. so i guess I should always find a posture where it does not click...
now I have started yoga.
