    TMJ is actually the temporomandibular joint. TMD is the abbreviation for Temporomandibular Joint disorder which is what you have. It is basically just a pain or disfunction of the TMJ. Nothing serious, just an annoyance for sure. Here is the wikipedia article on it.

    You must, please read this website and make sure you understand what is going on.

    Get another opinion as to the diagnosis, as is can be difficult to treat, and many times doing nothing is better.
