TMJ and Vertigo

TMJ disorders can be a pain on their own, but did you know that they can also cause other uncomfortable symptoms like vertigo?

Thankfully, getting treatment may help relieve vertigo along with jaw pain and other symptoms that are typical of TMJ Disorders. Read on to learn more.

How are TMJ and Vertigo connected?

If you have a TMJ disorder, jaw joint inflammation can affect the area around your ears. Should the inflammation reach your inner ears, your sense of balance may be affected. This is because there are sensors in your inner ears that help your brain regulate balance and positioning.

Symptoms of vertigo may appear if the inflammation reaches these areas of your ears.

Symptoms of Vertigo

Common signs of vertigo typically include:

  • Dizziness, or feeling as if the room is spinning
  • Nausea
  • Loss of balance
