Could Your Chronic Headaches Point To TMD? [Quiz]
There are many reasons for chronic headaches, from allergies to hormone changes, lack of sleep to caffeine withdrawal. Sometimes, it can be difficult to pinpoint the reason for your headaches, though. One of these tricky situations is TMD, which we wrote about in a blog post last month . TMD stands for temporomandibular joint disorder, but you may have heard it called TMJ.
TMJ disorder can be the cause of these headaches, especially morning migraines. If that sounds like your situation, Dr. Wallin can examine you and determine whether TMD is to blame. He can provide non-medication, nonsurgical solutions, too, through a simple oral appliance.
