Default Re: Issues with Jaw muscles and popping TMJ

I have had intermittent jaw pain and popping since I got ALS. As well as the heightened reflexes, there could be muscle weakness which is asymmetrical, causing stress on the TMJ. The popping has come and gone unpredictably. I had a recent episode of extreme jaw pain, but ibuprofen helped and I hardly have any pain now. Good luck!
