This study aimed to compare the headache severity and frequency among patients with TMD with headache and controls. A total of 49 subjects were included in the study, among which 29 had TMDs with headache and 20 with headache without the presence of any TMDs. Statistical Analysis was done using the Chi-square test and the one way ANOVA test. Out of 29 subjects with TMDs, 15 patients presented with myogenous cause and 11 presented with arthrogenous cause for TMDs. There was no statistically significant difference between the case and control group. Lateral pterygoid was the most commonly involved muscle in the myogenous group. Headache score may not be used as a predictor to differentiate headache associated with TMD and other headaches.
