TMJ arthritis?: Common in the spondyloarthropathies, especially psoriatic arthritis. I always inject a TMJ joint with an Insulin syringe (quite painless) with small amount of steroid and xylocaine (lidocaine). If it doesn't work, i refer to an oral surgeon. Bite issues and other mechanical problems could be the cause, including meniscal problems of the jaw. This joint bears more stress and shear force than any other!
