The right side of my jaw is causing me a lot of pain as of the last couple days. I can't open or close my mouth too much without really feeling the hurt. The housemate has suggested it could be a stress issue. On the other hand, my mother has had some issues with TMJ, so I may have some sort of genetic predisposition. But if it's not, what kind of doctor would one consult to diagnose/treat TMJ? If this doesn't go away in the next week, I definitely want to get it looked and get the TMJ pain treatment done. Have any of you have gone through anything similar before? If yes, then please share your experience.
