The symptoms of TMJ Disorder or Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can occasionally be mis-attributed to other complaints. For example, TMJ can cause severe headaches but this is often diagnosed as migraines and treated, not very successfully, accordingly.
Another common problem caused by TMJ is grinding which causes tooth wear and fractures.
