What Is TMJ?
TMJ is a disorder with the temporomandibular joint of the jaw. This joint is connected directly underneath your ear. It is the joint responsible for moving your jaw when you eat and speak.
TMJ can refer to a variety of different issues involving this joint. When the joint becomes inflamed, irritated, or is moved out of place, it cause serious pain, headaches, and jaw stiffness, among other symptoms.
