TMJ symptom: With over 40 years experience as a dentist and with some advanced training in TMD/TMJ, I personally have never seen or hear of numbness in forehead from TMJ. I am a dentist and not a physician but my instincts tell me to get a referral to someone in your area who specializes in Head and Neck pain; another neurologist; Dentist who has extensive training and experience with TMD; Dental school
