Symptoms can fool ya
When i explain tmj/tmd to my patients, i tell them that everyone has TMJ (unless some type of mutation, cancer
) TMJ is the anatomy of the jaw joints- (t) temporal bone on upper maxilla; (m) mandible- lower jaw; (j) joints- where the two meet in a complex of tendons, ligaments, etc. Tmd are the symptoms exhibited by someone who has a problem with the TMJ complex. See specialist.
