TMJ or muscle?: If the pain is under your chin it may be a muscle. Put your fingers where it is sore and open and close and move your tongue. It it is a muscle and it is sore you need to find out why. Pain indicates something is wrong. Call your dentist and get this looked at to be sure it is nothing serious like and infection.
