Just wondering if anyone has ever heard of a connection with CH's and TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint) TMJ is the joint where the condyle (Ball) of the mandibular Bone (Jaw bone) articulates with the temporal bone! It is the "jaw joint" that is next to your ear canal. I have heard in the past that it could possibly cause headaches if the joint is not properly articulating..

At times with my CH's i get a tremendous amount of pain in that general area, as im sure most of you do! Does anyone know if there might be a connection or has anyone discussed this with their Neuro.'s?

Any and all help you have on this would be most appreciative. Im going to my Neuro. on Friday and would like to be armed with any pertinant info. on this if anyone is aware of any!!

Continued thanks for all of your helpful information!
