i have had TMJ since i was a child. at first, i would get clicking on both sides of my jaw when i opened my mouth very wide. then after that it was just on the left side, and has been for many years. mostly i felt that it never caused me any problems. we still cosleep with ds1 (he'll be 4 soon) and he has started doing a lot of tossing and turning all night long. a couple of nights ago he ended up kicking me on the left side of my jaw, directly on the joint, VERY hard. i didn't have any problems the next day, but then yesterday i woke up and my whole jaw was sore, as if i had been grinding my teeth all night long, and i had a headache. my jaw was so sore that it was uncomfortable/painful to talk or eat. i was very tired and kept yawning (not a good idea) and i've noticed that the left side of my jaw no longer clicks but the right side now does and it's very painful. did ds1 do this?! i'm wondering if i will now need to go to a cranial sacral therapist for this. i have a headache today too.
