Is This Typical?
Jun 29, 2006
It is a gorgeous day in central Indiana where I just arrived home from a pleasurable walk with my son.

On the way home we stopped for ice cream. Mine had "crunchies" in it. By the time I finished chewing through the crunchies, my jaws were tired and I was so dizzy and nauseous.

Is this typical of TMJ?

Also..my dentist is making an appliance for me but suggested a mold-able athlete's mouthguard to use in the interim. After the dizziness and nausea set in (above) my ears began ringing...but stopped abruptly when I inserted the mouthguard.

Does this sound typical of TMJ to you?

I ask because I am trying to sort out what is TMJ and what is the "alleged" MS that a neurologist told me he thinks I have. Right now it seems all symptoms can be traced back to TMJ - end of subject.

TMJ is a disorder. It stands for temporalmandbuile joint.
TMJ can pretty much talk over your body so you can't enjoy life. MOst people have the clicking and the poping with jaw joints, neck pain, shoulder pain, headaches, limit openning, cant eat hard food and jaw pain. I have TMJ pretty bad and I wear a splint.
