Is TMJD the jaw condition?

This is usually a localised form of Myofascial Pain. It will be worsened by holding your jaw open for extended periods, such as when having dental work done. Myofascial trigger points in the jaw, neck and shoulders can cause recurrent migraine.

Are you on muscle relaxants or receiving injections for the TMJD?


I feel your pain, I have TMJ and dentist visits make it worse for sure, in fact a bad toothe extraction started it in the first place! I'm under a myofascial conultant and have never been offered muscle relaxants or injections, so will ask about them at my next appointment, thanks Lindsey! X
