TMJ also known as Temporomandibular joint is a joint and muscle disorder that can cause a lot of pain, discomfort and impairment around the area in the jaw as well as the muscles and joints responsible for controlling the jaw movement.
Symptoms are very distinguishable and can affect individuals differently. Clicking and popping sounds coming from the jaw are clear indications of TMJ symptoms. Other symptoms such as headaches, ringing and pain in the ears, neck pain and blurred vision are also TMJ symptoms.
TMJ symptoms are difficult to diagnose mainly because they are very similar to other conditions. Pain in the jaw, locked jaw, aches in the ear, ringing in the ears, neck pain and teeth grinding are the most common TMJ symptoms.
