In brief: TMJ disorder

Temporo-mandibular disorder is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain.
Earache, neck stiffness or neck pain, headache and jaw pain are common symptoms. Proper diagnosis is the key to the successful treatment. See an orofacial pain practitioner for a consultation and management of the TMJ.
