I can't remember where I read it, but I read that many people who have TMJ problems also have IBS. To me, IBS is a catch all for "we don't really know what's wrong". Regardless, there may be a connection between intestinal/bowel problems and TMJ. I think it may have something to do with the stress of having TMJ. I'll have to do some research on the connection. Do any of you who have TMJ also have IBS? If yes, what are your symptoms?
