TMJoint issues: Try soft diet, nsaids, warm moist heat to outside of face right in front of ears near joints, no gum chewing. There is not much else you can do on your own without seeing a dentist for an evaluation and treatment. This might include a bite guard to be worn, especially at night. The tinnitus may or may not be related to tmjoint inflammation. You should also see physician or ENT specialist for eval.

See a TMJ specialist: There are many symptoms included with tmj/tmd. Not sure who evaluated you and diagnosed your tmj, but if any doubt, see a specialist or get a second opinion.

Ear vs TMJ?: Serious tinnitus is usually related to ear problems. See an ENT doc for this. Treat your TMD to minimize that aspect of the problem.
