Could TMJ be causing my Benign Positional Vertigo

About 8 weeks ago I was laying down in bed, I sat up and the room started spinning.

The next morning I could not even stand in the shower, it felt as though I was going to fall, I was literally holding on to the shower walls.

While walking in the supermarket, I had similar experiences...not quite as dizzy, but I felt extremely off balance, as though I was walking on a boat or in a fun house.

8 weeks later, the dizziness has subsided somewhat, but anytime I am walking (bouncing) or have head movement (turning or bending over especially) I seem to trigger the vertigo.

I am wondering if my TMJ could be the culprit. I have felt ear fullness for years, along with some jaw pain.

Any info would be appreciated.

Cannot say for sure, but vertigo is definitely a symptom of TMJ. Ear fullness and jaw pain are as well so it very well could be.
