Okay, I've asked about this before but... Okay, ever since I was born, when I talk my jaw goes side ways. It doesn't hurt or "Pop" is it TMJ? Help?

In brief: Evaluation

Self-diagnosis can be at best wrong, at worst dangerous.
Jaw shift may be due to anatomical jaw joint dysfunction, neuromuscular imbalance, skeletal imbalance or malformation, neoplasm, or many other possible causes. You need to be examined and imaged by a Dentist fluent in treating dysfunctional joints. Your intriguing problem needs more investigation, and not over the Internet.
