TMJ (temporomandibular joints) disorders comprise a wide array of symptoms that range from irritating to unbearable. They can be caused by injury, muscle tension, grinding, and arthritis. Symptoms of TMJ disorders include problems chewing, swelling, headaches, jaw popping, the feeling like your jaw is sticking in an opened or closed position and more.
