TMJ vs Meniere's

Posted , 5 users are following.

So I've had TMJ for as long as i can remember. My jaw clicks and pops with any movement. I was diagnosed with Meniere's back in April. With a little Google time, I have discovered there is a direct correlation between the two. Has anyone else had been diagnosed with both, and have you s ought treatment for the TMJ? If so, did you have any success with it treating Meniere's symptoms as well??

    Hello!

    I've had Meniere's for a year and TMJ for years too (undiagnosed). I only found out about the correlation through a Facebook group. They are SO often the same thing. I'm willing to posit that 80% of Meniere's diagnoses are TMJ and cervical spine related. I've spoken to many many people who've had their Meniere's eradicated through GOOD TMJ treatment.

      ...when I say undiagnosed, I got it diagnosed in Feb this year but it went undiagnosed despite symptoms for many years!

    Hello Brandy; I've had tmj twice. 2 bad car accidents dislocated my jaw. I went to an orthodontist n had it wired shut. That helped. But when I go to bed, I have a hardish pillow cushion under my chin. I hug this n it supports my chin upwards all night long. This has Improved the tmj. I get the pillows that are about 10" across n 18 high. This size hugs nices between your arms n tucks under your chin nicely. Try it a couple weeks n let me know how you are doing. Blaze
