To open my mouth fully I have to "slide" my lower jaw to the left then open it, I even have to do this just to yawn or kiss or eat a hot dog. I guess it has come to be second nature and don't even think about it most of the time. Though it is a little strange. When I'm chewing I hear a popping most of the time. I never thought that clamping down would have anything to do with TMJ I just always attributed that to stress and the same to be said of the neck/back pain. Could be TMJ that causes me to sometimes have a sharp pain when I take the first bite (this doesn't happen everytime or even on a weekly basis) of something? That's the only pain I have that might or might not be related to TMJ... I guess I have been lucky so far.
