Anxiety And TMJ Symptoms
TMJ disorders can come from underlying anxiety disorders, such as general panic disorder, panic attacks or passive aggressive disturbance, but if you routinely experience anxious feelings and find yourself compulsively worrying and obsessing, you may be contributing to a TMJ condition. Just to make sure, you should of course consult with your doctor and the appropriate physical tests to rule out any other possible issues such as cranial injury or sicknesses.
Things you can do to help control the feelings of anxiety are:
- Breathing exercises
- Physical Exercise – 30 minutes of walking per day
- Homeopathic stress drops or pills
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) tapping acupuncture points
- Talking with a Health Coach to help resolve your problems
Understanding your anxiety and its probable causes is crucial, because it gives you a starting point – a steady ground from which you can build toward your well-being. When you repress your feelings, the energy of those feelings gets stuck in the body, which creates tension. When you hold back your feelings, like expressing anger and frustration, TMJ may be the result. No wonder more women experience TMJ than men. They have been told to believe it is bad to get angry and much worse to express it. TMJ sufferers tend to be highly conscientious people who try very hard to be a good person, forgiving, compassionate and very giving of themselves.
