Many possibilities: Tmj is an anatomical structure temporo-mandibular joint. Tmd is temporo-mandibular disorder that may include joint, muscles, nerves and ligaments or any combination. Without the diagnosis is a guessing game. Rec.: see orofacial pain specialist near your address. Here is the link: http://www.Aaop.Org/content.Aspx?Page_id=2720;club_id=508439.
