Headache Types

Temporomandibular Disorder (TMD)

Medically reviewed by Dr. Emma Foster, 17 May 2021

Temporomandibular joint disorders affect the jaw and muscles associated with chewing and can trigger headache. These disorders can be caused by injury, genetics, or arthritis. The headache is normally aggravated by jaw motion such as chewing, or even by just applying pressure to the temporalis muscle. Pain is normally felt in the temples or near the ear and is likely to affect both sides of the head.
