Courtesy of tmj.org:
Pain is the most common symptom. TMJ pain is often described as a dull aching pain in the jaw joint and nearby areas, including the ear, which comes and goes. Some people, however, report no pain, but still have problems using their jaws. Other symptoms can include:

Being unable to open the mouth comfortably
Clicking, popping or grating sounds in the jaw joint
Locking of the jaw when attempting to open the mouth
Headaches
A bite that feels uncomfortable or “off”
Neck, shoulder and back pain
Swelling on the side of the face


Yup. That sounds about right. My jaw is throbbing right now. Ugh.

If you have a TMJ disorder, you should avoid biting into an ear of corn, an apple, or a triple-decker sandwich, or doing anything that forces your mouth wide open.


Uh. yeah. I learned that today as I was eating my corn. Hurt like bloody hell.
