I think I might have TMJ. What are some of the symptoms?
There are a variety of symptoms. Some of them are jaw popping/clicking, pain or your jaw locking while chewing, jaw locking or clicking when you yawn or open your mouth widely. When I went to the dentist for my teeth cleaning the dental assistant recommended lowering my stress levels by doing yoga! She also recommended PT (physical therapy) exercises which you can find on YouTube.
Hope this helps.
A few signs:
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, this can also cause your jaw to lock. I'd visit your dentist (they can tell signs of grinding) and they might also suggest having a night guard made for you.
