I was just wondering if TMJ could be related to having lupus, since it is a connective tissue.
I have been having problems with my left jaw. I was in an auto accident a good while back. I was hit broadside(driver's door). I had TMJ problems from the accident and went through **** getting it under control.
I am curious if my tmj has become an arthritis thing now from past trauma to the face,neck and back. Or if the past accident is just haunting me,and created arthiritis with time. Having lupus is no help just makes things more complicated. I feel i shouldn't blame everything on lupus but it is confusing as a disease.
