Can TMJ cause me to get dizzy? Sometimes I can go for weeks with no problems, but sometimes when I move, my eyes I get dizzy.

According to one website, TMJ has the potential to cause dizziness because the joints that are affected in TMJ are right in the front of the inner ear. If they become inflamed, then that could effect middle ear functioning and that could cause dizziness. There is also apparently a muscle in the neck that helps maintain balance that can be effected by the muscle tension found in TMJ.
