Your Jaw May Be to Blame for Your Headaches

 Biting your nails, chewing on pen caps, or chewing a lot of gum may be the cause of your headaches. Did you know? 

If you have any of those habits, you might have temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). 

It is related to the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and causes headaches, damage to oral health, and pain in the facial muscles. 

This dysfunction is hard to control, as it usually is linked to emotional issues. The repetitive act of chewing your nails or pen caps affects all the temporomandibular system,  which includes bones, muscles, nerves, blood vessels, tongue, and teeth. 

Do you have any of these habits? 

Some other symptoms of TMD are ringing in the ears, difficulty opening the mouth, and difficulty chewing food. 

All those issues develop from apparently harmless habits. Even holding your phone with your shoulder, resting your chin on your hands, or chew gum on one side of your mouth can trigger TMD. Did you know that? 

But do you know why you have developed these habits? 

If you have any of the habits listed above or know someone who has, pay attention to it and, if necessary, talk to a health professional, like a dentist or osteopath!
