Pain behind eye?

Hello,

I have been suffering from rather severe pain/discomfort behind and around my left eye for the past year and a half. I'm wondering if this could have something to do with my jaw. Does anyone have symptoms like this from TMJ? The only other TMJ symptom I have is that my jaw hinge clicks slightly whenever I open and close it, though I know this is common without TMJ.

Or has anyone had any jaw issues that caused pain behind their eye?

Many Thanks,
Neal

Thanks for the response. I'll post here when I get it all figured out; I'm thinking about seeing an orofacial pain specialist. Hope it gets better!

I def get eye pains with my TMJ its beyond uncomfortable. My chiropractor actually adjusts my neck and the pain behind my eyes decreases and they move much better, less of a forced feeling. Try seeing a chiropractor who's certified in neurology. However, my Tmj gave me chronic tension headaches, and I was just recently prescribed an anti-inflamatory and topamax- a nuerologist might be able to prescribe you a relief plan as well as a prevention plan if you do get diagnosed with headaches. Tmj and headaches usually go hand in hand
