TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Message Board

TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint Board Index

I have had tmj for about 8 months. Mostly all the dentists say my tmj is mild. I don't have much pain but just a tension build up on my facial area. I also have OCD-Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and what I have been doing for the past 6 months is cracking my jaw throughout the day. My tmj is acting up again and my jaw and facial area is feeling tensed. I feel tired when this happens. My question is by popping/cracking my jaw, what do you think I have been damaging? The ligaments, joints, or muscles or all? The symptoms I am experiencing now is my muscles are all tight, and it clicks and makes a grating noise when I open my jaw. But I can still open my mouth wide. Do you think I have permanently damaged my jaw or do you think if I stop this bad habit it will get better in time?
