? migraine ?: You describe the typical distribution of pain for a migraine event. If these are very intense, brief in duration, and come in clusters, it is referred to as cluster migraine. If associated with throbbing pain, photophobia, nausea, vertigo, visual changes, it is common migraine. However, pathology of the eye and sinuses should be ruled out. V1 trigeminal neuralgia can cause similar problems.

Tmj: You likely have tmj. A way to tell is to open and close the jaw with a finger placed in the TMJ socket which is roughly the pocket created when one opens the mouth and places a finger directly in front of the ear canal right at the level of the sideburns. Softer foods, warm compresses and Motrin should help. Avoid gum chewing. Other option is migraine.
