TMJ is a chronic illness that affects many people. TMJ is short for Temporomandibular Joints, the two joints that connect your jaw to your head. The symptoms of TMJ are many and varied. Some common symptoms include headaches, dizziness, numbness in fingers and arms, and difficulty swallowing. Many people also experience locking of the jaw, jaw movement limitations, and clicking or grinding sound in the jaw joints. TMJ may cause neck, shoulder or back pain, facial pain, and pain behind eyes, or unexplained loosening of teeth. Earaches, ear stuffiness or ringing, and pain or soreness in and around the jaw joints can also indicate TMJ.
