Anyone have TMJ Disorder?

I think I do.  I always have trouble with my jaw....I clench my teeth when I am stressed and the past 2 days have been a little stressful.

Anyway I am having terrible pain all along my jawline up to my temple.  I took a muscle relaxer but I was wondering if it sounded like TMJ Disorder to anyone who has it
