TMJ Disorder or Chronic Migraines?

According to Sturm & Associates, your nagging frequent headaches could be caused by your temporomandibular joint. You could have TMJ disorder and not even know it. 

As odd as it may seem that little hinge that connects your jaws together on both sides can cause all sorts of problems.

Referred to as TMJ disorder, people suffering often complain of jaw pain and headaches. However, that isn’t the only problems that come with TMJ disorder.

The Problems with TMJ Disorder

Dr. Judy Sturm explains that your TMJ is the most complex joint you have and if it is out of whack and not functioning like it should, could cause extreme discomfort and pain.

Often misdiagnosed as migraine headaches, TMJ disorder causes shoulder, neck, and facial pain. Sometimes the ears are affected as well. If you hear popping and clicking when you open and close your mouth, it most likely has something to do with your TMJ.

If you suffer from any of the above symptoms and haven’t had any luck with migraine treatments or headache remedies, it could have something to do with your TMJ.

Why Do People Have TMJ Disorder?

TMJD can occur for a variety of reasons. For example, if someone receives a blow to the head jaw damage is a real possibility. People who constantly grind their teeth, a condition known as bruxism, can also suffer from temporomandibular joint.

TMJ disorders also happen if your bite is out of alignment because of chipped and cracked teeth. If you have old dental restorations, they could be causing problems as well.
