Visit your Dentist: You have symptoms consistent with TMJ dysfuction. Seek the advice of a dentist specializing in TMJ problems; if it is your tmj, then a dental orthotic can be made for you to eliminate jaw pain and ear pain.

Many things: Although the first thing that comes to mind is a TMJ (joint) problem which could account for both symptoms, there are so many other possibilities, too many to include all. These symptoms may or may not be related. Start by seeing a dentist to evaluate the jaw pain with an exam and x-rays. Your dentist will then let you know what is wrong and if you also need to see a physician or ENT specialist.

Few things: Most common diagnosis would be a problem with jaw joint. Or could be primarily an ear problem. Start with your dentist or an oral surgeon for diagnosis/treatment recommendations.

TMJ: The combination may be what is called TMJ - tempromandibular jioint dysfunction. It is commonly caused by jaw clenching excessively. It may be accompanied by a click in the TMJ, point where the jaw meets the skull, when you open your jaw wide, or a clunk at the same point. See your doctor who should be able to make the diagnosis by palpating the TMJ whild you open your mouth wide or dentist
