Unraveling the Connection with TMJ

What Is TMJ-Related Difficulty Breathing?

Difficulty breathing can manifest in various forms, ranging from a sensation of tightness in the chest to labored breathing and shortness of breath. While it’s commonly associated with respiratory conditions, it might also be linked to issues with the temporomandibular joint.

The temporomandibular joint plays a crucial role in the body’s respiratory system. Dysfunction in this joint can lead to a myriad of symptoms, including difficulty breathing. When the jaw is misaligned or the muscles surrounding the joint are tense, it can restrict the airway, making breathing more challenging.

Symptoms of Difficulty Breathing

  • Feeling of tightness in the chest
  • Shortness of breath
  • Labored breathing, especially during sleep
  • Frequent sighing or yawning
  • Inability to take deep breaths
