I just realized yesterday by accident that my 16 yr old son might have this problem. He has been complaining of frequent headaches and then yesterday while he was eating, i heard his jaw pop. When i asked him about it, he said that that happens somewhat frequently. I have chronic pain and symptoms but, even though my jaw cracks when i open and close my mouth, it has never popped while eating. I was so surprised to realize this with my son and i feel bad to think that this is something that he got from me. When i told him that i have pain on the left side of my head, he said that he mostly has headaches on the right side and that is the side that popped. One other thing is that I don't know for sure but, don't really think that i grind my teeth. But, now that i think about it, i think that my son does grind his teeth. So sad to realize this but, i guess there could be much worse things to have to deal with.
