Hello, I am 25 years old and I was diagnosed with TMJ about a two yrs. ago. I've went through alot including my jaw locking, terrible headaches, spasms all over my body including my jaw area and temples, feeling like my teeth was going to fall out of my mouth. But since I have gotten braces those symptoms have stopped, except for the tingling around and on my nose and lip area....it is almost like a wrinkling, tingling feeling that I have 24/7 I also still have the symptoms of not being able to get enough air in, and chest beating fast, nervousness, and sometimes even slight tremors around mouth and nose area. I use to love people and loved meeting new people, but now since being diagnosed with TMJ some of these symptoms seem like i have anxiety now, so I have been almost hiding from people, because when I'm excited to see someone or feel energrtic this weird feeling comes over me and i get really nervous and want to hide. And also when i SMILE MY LIPS TEND TO TREMBLE OR SHAKE!!! and that makes me feel uncomfortable. I was wondering if this had something to do with maybe a nerve in my facial area being pinched because of the trauma the TMJ may have caused or I really dont know what else to think PLEASEEEE help me figure this out. Im a second yr. nursing student and I just enjoy helping people, but this situation is kind of putting a hault in the middle of what I hope to do in my future!!!!

  • My friend had TMJ issues for years and then found a chiropractor that was able to completely resolve it. Took a while though.
