    Exactly what I though with the normal abnormalities stuff.

    My jaw doesnt really make sounds, if it does happen, its from VERY STIFF muscles, you know when you crack your back or get a massage you can feel the muscle adhesion releasing.
    Most people who clench their jaw at night will wake up with more jaw/face pain, but I don't get this, so I don't think I am even clenching at night. Sometimes I think I may be clenching a bit during the day, which most people do anyways I think.

    Nancy, when I was younger I would clench my teeth and the dentist tried to get me me to wear a night guard, but I didn't think I did it because I didn't hurt. When I broke a perfectly healthy molar I finally started wearing a night guard. Then I forgot to take it with me and I kept waking myself up with the noise that I was no longer used to hearing. So I believe one can clench pretty darn hard without causing pain. I guess I just mean to encourage you to fallow your dentist's advice concerning your teeth, but I definitely think pain from tmj, is tms.

    Tmj is actually doesn't affect me much, I only have wear and tear on my retainers because they weren't able to "fully fix" my misaligned bite, because the dentist screwed it up so bad. And yes, my Tmj probably started because of TMS.
