Testing: Very vague groups of symptoms occurring simultaneously. Could be an autoimmune reaction or some other health syndrome. Get to an Internal medicine Dr. and I am sure tests will be run.

TMJ expert: The neck arthritis, herniated disk and cubital tunnel have been present for longer, just symptomatic now. could be coincidental . See a TMJ expert to explore your TMD. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
