TMD refers to temporomandibular joint disorder, often referred to as TMJ. It is a misalignment in the ball and socket joint that connects your jaw to the rest of your skull.

Some symptoms of TMD can include headaches, facial pain, and jaws that “lock” or make popping and clicking noises. You may have facial pain and chronic headaches, or numbness and tingling in your arms and hands if you have TMD.
