Is the pain in my jaw from muscles or from joints?

Face and jaw pain

Facial and head pain, as experienced by almost 90% of all fibromyalgia patients is referred to as Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome or TMJD. It manifests itself as facial and jaw pain and tenderness, and while it feels like a joint problem, it is actually pain in the surrounding muscles and ligaments.
