TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Message Board


TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Board Index


Hey man, I also suffer from TMJ disorder. It is definitely not much fun, so I can feel your pain. I believe it can affect the sinuses as it can affect a lot of other things. My TMJ was so bad in high school that I remember it would completely lock up while i was eating. I also got a night guard made and that has helped significantly.

I get really bad clicking and popping in the joint and it is extremely distracting, especially when giving presentations and whatnot. I think it is affecting my sinuses as well, as pressure builds up in my left ear/jaw and when I breathe in I can feel it affect the pressure. It's like when I'm in an airplane and the pressure builds and then I stretch out my jaw and the pressure subsides temporarily. This makes talking to people really difficult sometimes as I have bad pressure on top of the clicking and crackling in my ear. Like people will ask me why I'm being so quiet and it's because of my TMJ.

Hi, thanks for your response! My jaw occasionally locks up and has even popped out of place on occasion whilst Iíve been eating. Our symptoms sound very similar and I hope things improve for us both. I think the mouth guard is helping a bit (Iím not waking up with headaches)
