My tmj started a year ago, i had no pain, just grating sounds were coming from my jaw. After sometime the tmj problem dissapeared, i dont know how and a year it was caused by when i was chewing food. My question is, what could havecaused my tmj to have pain and what do i do?

TMJ pains
by: Dr. Spainhower

Hello Tebasto,

There are many reasons or possibilities that could cause your pains.

Please read the other posts on this blog and my website to get an idea of what yours could be.

It is usually some form of environmental stressors, but could be a dysfunction in the TMJ that needs a qualified doctor to look at.
