Temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ, is a disorder that most commonly affects the joint found in between the back of the jaw and the skull. TMJ can be a difficult condition and, in some cases, the disorder could lead to the development of anxiety.
Anxiety is usually a condition that occurs gradually over time as a result of life experiences or genetics but temporomandibular joint disorder may influence the development of this condition. It might appear strange to associate a joint disorder in the jaw with anxiety but TMJ causes a great variety of symptoms that cause the development of anxiety. In other cases, TMJ often doesn’t cause anxiety, instead it makes anxiety worse.
