TMJ Problems: Problems with your TMJ are not bacterial in nature.. there are no microorganisms involved.

Trigenminal Nerve: Although the anatomic points are separated by 4-5 cm. this sounds like and old blow to the head.

Be grateful that you did not have a more significant Trigeminal nerve problem-a real severe pain called a tic doloreaux.. ...Read more

See your MD ASAP: these are too many signs /symptoms to NOT be something that could be serious. Schedule a visit with your MD to have your blood pressure checked, stress test, bold tests etc. there could be a serious underlying factor here. You could also see a dentist who treats TMD but I think you need to be cleared medically first. ...Read more

What could be the cause of pressure in eye sockets? Is it related to TMJ or bite issues

Tmj unlikely: Typically TMJ will cause more issues in and around your ears than your eyes though i wouldn't rule it out completely. It is more likely due to something involving your sinuses. I would recommend you see your doctor to rule that out first and then see your dentist. ...Read more

Hard to say: Blurry vision can have a lot of causes. the most important thing for you to do is get checked. Wear you glasses more till then, and use your drops. But it might be serious and we cannot replace eyes yet! Don't take chances, please. Some meds (over the counter and prescription) can cause blurry vision. Read labels . Certainly, if it worsens, or you have pain, severe headaches get to an ER ...Read more

Ok well can TMJ cause problems like the temple artery to get thick/tough & bring on temple ha's my eyes have lil pain in them with all of this scared?

Most likely stress.: Most likely your pain is from bruxism(clenching or grinding your teeth). The amount of bruxing is directly proportional to the amount of stress you are under. "tmj" has become a catchall for all jaw pain. It actually refers to pain in the joint. Most other pain is due to muscle, teeth or nerves. There is a fine balance among all areas. You should see your dentist to determine the source. ...Read more
