Besides jaw pain, TMJ symptoms may also include pain or aches near the ears, a sort of “popping” or clicking sound when you open or close your mouth, the aforementioned headaches, and even pain in the shoulders or neck. Some people may also experience swelling of the face, pain in the eyes, or ringing in the ears, also known as tinnitus.
A solution to TMJ disorder? Botox may be the answer. Besides creating a more youthful appearance via fewer wrinkles, Botox has also been used to treat other conditions such as migraines, involuntary contractions in the muscles, and more. The injections relax some of the more hyperactive muscles, allowing people to experience relief from the pain. The effects of Botox can typically last as long as six months though this will vary among patients.
