Could be: Could be from ear infection, TMJ dysfunction, throat or tonsil infection, impacted wisdom tooth, neoplasm, systemic disease, muscle sprain, neurological disorder, and many other possibilities. Bite the bullet, call BOTH your Physician and your Dentist for diagnosis and treatment. Know that your symptoms may have multiple coincidental unrelated causes.
