Crazy4heels, YES! About 33% of patients with a TMJ disorder describe muffled, clogged, or full ears. They may notice ear fullness and pain during airplane takeoffs and landings. These symptoms are usually caused by eustachian-tube dysfunction, the structure responsible for the regulation of pressure in the middle ear. It is thought that patients with TMJ disorders have hyperactivity (spasms) of the muscles responsible for regulating the opening and closing of the eustachian tube.

I found this comment to be hilarious. "The American's have no right to think we have bad food. It's easily better than their fake, spray-on cheese." The same reason Americans are fat, stupid, and rude, the French are snobbish, and stinky, and the Germans are harsh. You meet one person and assume...
