Relief for migraine and chronic headache sufferers

Common symptoms include:

  • Pain or tenderness in your face, jaw joint area, neck and shoulders, and in or around the ear when you chew, speak or open your mouth wide
  • Jaws that get “stuck” or “lock” in the open or closed position
  • Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint when you open or close your mouth or chew
  • A tired feeling in your face
  • Trouble chewing or a sudden uncomfortable bite, as if the upper and lower teeth are not fitting together properly
  • Swelling on the side of your face
  • Your temporomandibular joint is a hinge that connects your jaw to the temporal bones of your skull, which are in front of each ear. It lets you move your jaw up and down and side to side so you can talk, chew and yawn. Problems with your jaw and the muscles in your face that control it are known as Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ). TMJ often causes severe pain and discomfort, which can be temporary or last many years. It might affect one or both sides of your face. More women than men have it, and it’s most common among people between the ages of 20 and 40.
