More Americans take time off from work for headaches than any other reason. When asked why they have headaches, they make up reasons: Allergies, sinusitis, stress. That's a biggie, STRESS; it's a typical self-diagnosis these days. Seems everyone is stressed out.
We all know folks who have more stress than we do. But not everyone who is stressed suffers from headaches. So if you suffer from daily or weekly headaches, I would like to suggest you investigate an underlying cause of your headaches that your physician may not have suggested.
TMJ is a really bad name for a common problem. TMJ stands for Temporo-Mandibular Joint. This joint moves when your lower jaw moves around. When people think they have TMJ problems, it should more correctly be termed TMD (Temopro-Mandibular Dysfunction) or MFP (MyoFacialPain) Syndrome.
