TMJ is another word for Temporomandibular Joint Disorder. It is often very painful due to the fact that it moves every time you chew, talk or use your mouth in anyway. This pain is caused by the displaced cartilage where the lower jaw connects to the skull.
The following are a few symptoms you may experience if you are suffering from TMJ:
- Pain in and around the ear
- Swelling on the side of the face
- Clicking or Popping sounds when opening and closing your mouth.
