Many: Tmj/tmd is often suspected to cause ear problems (pain, ringing, roaring, grating;) headaches, facial and neck pain, etc. Often dentists and tmj/tmd specialists are the last to be seen after other professions attempt to heal.

Headaches, neck pain, ear aches, and facial pain are often associated with joint dysfunction.

It is a shame that the dentist is typically the last place most people seek help as we are typically the least invasive option.

Several: Temporal arteritis, tic de lorouix and certain other facial pain maladies. Seek the care of a dentist who has trained in facial pain.

Diagnosis: There are many things that can be mistaken for TMJ such as postural issues, facial pain, nerve disorders, cysts, infections. The list could go on. Make sure you see your doctor to get properly diagnosed.
