FAQ: What Causes TMJ Related Headaches?

You’ve had a long, hard day when it hits: pain that radiates from your neck and head, only preceded by an ongoing stiffness in your jaw.

Different From a Regular Headache

Pain from the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be easily mistaken for a common headache, mostly because the symptoms are so similar. But there are a few key differences that set TMJ headache apart from your garden-variety tension headache.
By accurately identifying the type of pain you’re experiencing, we can bring you relief before the sensation becomes unbearable.

TMJ Pain Symptoms

Usually, according to Mayo Clinic, pain radiating from the TMJ comes with:

  • crackling or grinding sound when you move your jaw.
  • Stiffness in the joint, making it difficult to open and close your mouth.
  • Facial tenderness and pain.
  • Earaches.
Watch below as I explain more about TMJ and how, even the slightest misalignment, or “bad bite” can also bring extraordinary TMJ related headaches.
