TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Message Board

TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Board Index

Well with that title I am sure every guy on the board read your post any way thinking (or hoping) it was about oral sex.:) - or lack of it!

I am not sure if this is due to my age or not but my period definitely was much lighter the first 3 years with the tmj and now I have skipped several months as well. I figured that the chronic pain must have triggered a change in chemical/hormonal production since the brain does respond to prolonged duress like that. Sometime other illnesses can also affect women this way as well. But I am also turning 50 this year and never had children so I could be going through a somewhat early menopause - to be honest I thought I started peri-meno in my late 30's and early 40's but my dr and my gyno said I was way too young for it then -but I did go through a period of weight gain for no reason, hot flahses and very irratic periods and then after about 3-4 years of that everything just went back to normal. I started with the tmj when I was 46.

I wouldn't be surprised that the time of the month would affect tmj - I don't know about you, but I used to have extreme bouts of PMS where I literally felt like I was on the edge and ready to rage out of control - so can you imagine what that does to someone if they are prone to clenching and ginding?
