could the chronic pain and pressure in my nasal cavity be caused by a tmj problem?

Possible: The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) are the jaw joints, which are on the side of the face in front of the ears. These joints can hurt often due to the the incorrect position of the top jaw bone with the lower jaw bone of the joint. Malalignment is a common but the TMJ can hurt if it develops arthritis, if the person is a tooth grinder, etc usually the pain is on the side and not the nasal.

No.: Tmj problems don't cause chronic pain and pressure in the nasal cavity. More likely causes include allergies, a sinus infection, a deviated nasal septum or enlarged inferior turbinates. If it persists, your best bet is to seek evaluation and treatment by an allergist or an ENT doctor (otolaryngologist).

Very unlikely: You probably should see your local ear, nose and throat specialist.
