TMJ Headache

There are many types of headaches. However, one kind of headache is a TMJ Headache, or 'Jaw Pain' Headache. 

What is a TMJ Headache?

The TMJ is the hinge connecting your jaw to your skull. It allows you to do things like talk, laugh, and chew, and enables your jaw to move up and down and side to side.

Due to the hinge and sliding motions, this joint is a bit more complicated than other joints in the body and can cause a variety of symptoms if there is something amiss. A TMJ Headache can be one of the symptoms caused by a TMJ Dysfunction

Signs and Symptoms of TMJ Headache

There are many different kinds of headaches, but TMJ Headaches typically occur with other symptoms. These can include:

  • tight facial or jaw muscles
  • jaw or facial pain
  • a “clicking” noise in the jaw
  • restricted movement of the jaw
  • changes in your bite (that is, the way your top and bottom teeth fit together)

A TMJ Headache will usually present as a tight, dull aching headache located over the temple region. It can be on the one side or bilateral. It can be confused with tension headaches.  

Causes of TMJ Headache

A TMJ Headache is caused by the dysfunction of the Temporomandibular Joint, and any muscle stress or tension associated with it. This can be as simple as teeth grinding, to TMJ Dyfunction-related disorders such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis or joint hypermobility.
