Abstract

Objectives: A 2-year longitudinal study to investigate the existence of self-reported Other Body Symptoms (OBS) in 64 females complaining of Temporo Mandibular Joint (TMJ) symptoms after receiving conservative treatment for OBS and TMJ symptoms. Methods: Data were collected using three different questionnaires answered by patients over three visits. Questions included information about patients’ age, existence, and type of OBS, type of TMJ symptoms, present pain index, and rating of their TMJ symptom and OBS treatment outcomes from the last visit. Results: Ninety-three percent of subjects reported that at least two OBS occurred concurrently with TMJ symptoms. Neck pain was reported most frequently, followed by back pain, headache, and tinnitus. OBS treatment outcomes showed that 91.5% of patients became symptom-free. Discussion and Conclusion: TMJ symptoms and conservative management were associated with the presence and improvement of OBS.
