TMJ & many symptoms: Temporal Mandibular Dysfunction TMD has many symptoms. You have described some but not all. Seek a DDS/DMD or Oral surgeon who treats this condition. Many don't. Those with expertise can find a way to manage your problem. I have been doing so since 1981.

Yes: These are all typical TMJ symptoms. If your doctor has ruled out any ear infections, make an appointment to see your dentist or a dentist who treats TMJ dysfunction.

TMJ plus: All are symptoms of TMJ expect itchy ear. You may also have external otitis (swimmers ear). See ENT doc for ears. O/W see TMJ espert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
