Hair Chewing!

Hello. One of my boys, Bullseye, is a year and a half and he has TMJ. Recently he has decided to start chewing fur and hair. He hasn't shown signs of doing it to his brothers yet (he is not dominant), but when I had him out yesterday, he spent five minutes chewing the dog's fur before I could get him away from her, and upon taking him away from the dog, he promptly grabbed my hair and started chewing it, and pulling it. This is strange, as he has never shown compulsive behaviors before. I don't know what to do! I got a video of him chewing my hair if that helps, but right now all I can do is keep my hair tied up, and keep him away from the dogs. Help?

Check his diet, check for signs of pain.

This can be Bullseye's thread.

Ok. Could it be pain? I know something is up with him. Pain would make sense. He has TMJ, and we put him on Hydromet temporarily, and he improved, but he seemed ok so I took him off of it last week.
