What are the symptoms of TMJ?

Posted by: theruler  (5 years ago)
I've got cracking noise whenever I yawn or chew. I also have ringing in the ear but not too often. For the past few weeks, I kept having lightheadedness whenever I wake up. Could this be TMJ? Has anyone ever experienced this? What should be done with this? I would be grateful for any help.

Hello!

I was diagnosed with TMJ and I get clicking or popping sounds whenever I yawn or chew. The most common symptom of TMJ is a dull ache or pain in the jaw that spreads to the ear and head. Go to a TMJ specialist and get evaluated.

My niece has something like this, she says her jaws make a clicking sound especially when she opens her mouth wide. I think I saw something on the This is Dentistry website about TMJ disorders - and I believe my niece's condition resulted from her crooked teeth. She's scheduled to have braces in about a year or so, hopefully that will take care of the TMJ/clicking sound as well!

Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders may include:

Pain or tenderness of your jaw
Aching pain in and around your ear
Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing
Aching facial pain
Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth
Headache
Uncomfortable bite
An uneven bite, because one or more teeth are making premature contact

Keep safe

Regards,
Fred
