Ear pain, pressure: All of your symptoms taken together suggests TMJ dysfunction. This is commonly caused by bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), which is very often a stress-related habit. Make an appointment with your dentist for diagnosis and treatment. You should also consult with your medical doctor or an ENT specialist to rule out an ear infection.
