Why does my jaw hurt?
You might have a temporomandibular disorder (TMD), although it is more commonly called TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge that connects our lower jaw to our skull. When the joint becomes inflamed, people can have chronic jaw pain as well as limited mobility and fatigue.
