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.

TMJ Syndrome: Temporo-mandibular syndrome is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain. TMJ syndrome may cause ear stuffiness and pain, jaw clicking and pain, neck pain and headache. Proper diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. See an orthodontist for consultation and treatment options.
