I’m a vocalist with a TMJ issue and when I’m singing my jaw starts to get inflamed. It’s very frustrating.
Temporomandibular joint disorders
Chronic Generalized pain
I can totally relate. I used to be heavily involved in choir and drama in school and would have to take ibuprofen to try to manage the pain I would sometimes experience. I would also have pain radiate to my ears, head and eyes at times. Singing is one of my coping strategies though, so I suffer through it. The things we do for what we love.
I have this same problem I love singing but it physically hurts my jaw to open it too far
Yes this is one of the most annoying things. I love singing in the car it’s therapeutic for me but then the rest of the day and day after my jaw is so uncomfortable. Frustrating
