I'm pretty sure I have tmj, not sure what it is though. My neck and jaw musclse are so tight I can barely open my mouth more than an inch. My mouth just wants to clamp down all the time. It seems like this has developed after my lpr started.

I know TMJ can be quite painful. My wife has it and deals with popping and sometimes a locking jaw.

Not sure if there is a connection to LPR or not, but my wife clenches her jaw and grinds her teeth at night.

Take care,

Hmmmm, my TMJ started at the same time as my reflux problems. I wonder if they are related? Could be... Your dentist can fit you with a night guard, they really work well.
