I have really bad TMJ my main symptoms is clenching making the muscles seize, jaw lock up and tighten muscles. Its that bad that even with a mouthguard from dentist im breaking and chipping my teeth resulting in dental treatement each month. Dentist reckons I'll probably end up with no teeth if it carries on! :yikes:

Clicking and popping is another TMJ symptom. To do with the jaw joint although I sure your well away of that. I found Indian head Massage good for TMJ.

Yes I have had clicking left jaw on and off for years. Recently it caused a lot of pain and so I went to a therapist who put it back in. This only made things worse for a week and I could not eat on that side. O e mor ing I yawned and it clicked out. Much better at least I can eat now. I have TMJ and also get a lot of tingling in my face and lips since developing fibromyalgia.
