June is national migraine awareness month. With June right around the corner and as a way to spread awareness about migraines, we thought we would share with our readers the early warning signs of TMJ to watch out for. Oftentimes frequent migraines are actually the result of untreated temporomandibular joint disorder.
Pain in the Jaw Area
One of the earliest signs of TMJ you may encounter is a pain in the jaw area. You will likely wake up with pain in the area in front of your ear, in your forehead, around your eyes, or in your neck. In addition to these painful areas, you may also wake up with a migraine. If you notice any of these symptoms, especially consistently, it’s a good idea to get evaluated for TMJ at Kuhn Dental Associates.
