I have TMJ too. Didn’t make the connection. Hope you’re improving.

Sounds like you might be correct in ‘strained muscle’. It sometimes takes awhile for them to recover.

When my TMJ acts up first sign is ‘usually’ a nagging headache. I then make sure my jaws are in place .. the lovely pop tells me I might have it there. Then my jaws ache for a few days. Lately it has been swelling and difficulty swallowing. I will be 73 years old soon. My aging body … symptoms for common things like a bladder infections are weird. With this injury to my jaws my gums have become inflamed. They are better now. I have a good doctor and a good dentist. I see my doctor again in July and if not better he will order MRI .. forgot to mention that I had neck problems for many years that nothing to be done for and this shoving my jaw into my pillow flared it up. My doctor will order a MRI to make sure my neck and jaws are okay. I think I will be good by then. God gives me many opportunities to practice patience. 😁
