Over the years I have spoken with thousands of TMJ disorder patients, and have noticed that we ask very similar questions. I had a lot of these same questions when I started researching, but it was hard to find the answers.
1. Does anyone experience dizziness with TMJ disorder?
Yes. Many TMJD patients experience dizziness, and some experience a general off balance feeling. Sometimes this can be attributed to swelling in the joint that is putting stress on the inner ear. The inner ear is where your balance comes from.
2. Sometimes when I move my jaw, I hear a popping noise in my ear. Does this mean I have TMJ?
Maybe. Jaw noises do not 100%, all the time mean you have TMJ disorder. Some people have noises in their jaw joints, but never worry a day in their lives about developing TMJ. I think of it like a knee or ankle popping. Sometimes my knees pop when I go up and down the stairs, but I’m not too worried about developing a massive arthritis problem.
3. Do Botox injections decrease TMJ related muscle spasms or jaw pain?
