See your dentist: You will need to get a consultation to find out what is exactly causing the TMJ pain or if it is something else, need to really see the facial asymmetry and get a ct scan. Call either an oral surgeon or a prosthodontist who has training in tmj.

You can: Use warm towels to soften the hairs on your face before shaving. Are you using a shaving lotion that contains emollients/moisturizers? If you are doing these things and you still have pain shaving - you might consider evaluation by a dermatologist.
