Pea size knot on jaw joint next to ear, TMJ/TMD?


Is getting a knot next to the ear at the jaw a normal part of TMJ/TMD or does it need treatment?

    I wish, I'd be less worried. This is too far up and sitting in the jaw joint where when I open my mouth it sends pain into my jaw.

    I had horrible issues with TMJ as a teen. This is not something that is normally there and my jaw hurts to open. I also have a headache but can not tell if this is related or from recent concussion. Thanks!

    Also if you have a Spoonk (acupuncture mat) and you lay your face on it the knot may be relieved. I had a full day of being able to open my mouth once after the acupuncture :p
