Customer Question

From the online responses it was determined that I might have TJD. I should add that I also have a leaking aortic valve and one artery 50% blocked. Also, I have severe sarcoidosis with lungs that are pretty well shot. Given my other conditions, is the TJD possibility still accurate?
Thank you

Can you please let me know what you mean when you say TJD?

Kind regards

Typo on my part. Should have said TMJ
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.

TMJ means temporomandibular joint and arthritis in this joint is pretty common and if you are having pain and stiffness in your jaw this is a valid possibility but again this needs to be confirmed by further tests.

Let me know if you have more questions.
