I didn't know that actually so thanks . I just wonder if my jaw is misaligned a bit and causing it to be painful. I also noticed that at the back of the inside of my mouth where I had my wisdom teeth out I have this weird webbing where i guess my tendons would be and when I open my mouth wide and it pulls. It seemed to have caused the tension in my jaw. I was going to have my boss check it out but I know he doesn't specialize in TMJ. I feel like calling my dentist but I am worried I'll end up paying a fortune for it. I'm confused
