You can also goggle TMJ, I berlieve there are several message boards on TMJ. You can alos post here under support. Many of the posters, including myself, have had or have TMJ. Really wish I had internet access when I was going through my very severe bout with TMJ several years ago ;)

Try this link there is a little video you can watch which explains about some of the causes of jaw problems.

To clarify TMJ stands for tempromandibular joint and we all have one it isn't the actual condition. This joint is like any other in the body and be subject to pain and discomfort if it is agrevated or damaged in any way the most common cause is tooth grinding.

Hope the link helps i think it sums everything up quite nicely.
the website also offers help on other topics at this link
