Yes, but: It is just as likely, or more, that the tooth has caused the other distress. See your dentist if this has happened before or if it continues past a normal 'migraine' for you. Migraines are a very specific thing and don't usually impact teeth or jaw. Rather the temple(s) are most common. Have a dental exam. Best!

Midface migraine: Although migraine is usually considered a headache, it can also present as pain in the teeth, jaw and/or the maxillary sinus which often confuses the diagnosis. Patients may even present with secondary autonomic symptoms such as nasal stuffiness. See Orofacial Pain or headache specialist for management.

Yes, but: Yes, but more likely tooth pain due to tooth problem. See dentist for assessment of dental pain.
