Varies: Tmj problems vary in nature, severity, and duration. Depending on the cause of the TMJ pain, you may experience pain of the lower jaw, cheek area, in front of the ears, temple region, and even the back of the neck. Chronic tmd requires an evaluation by a trained professional and if you have chronic pain i would suggest you see a dentist trainedto manage tmd or myofacial pain. Best of luck.
