Coincidental: You may have two simultaneous coincidental problems. You may have dysfunction of your jaw joint with disc displacement, and you may have infected teeth. Please call a Dentist and make an appointment before your chronic problems become severely acute.

TMJ? Unlikely: The reasons for the cold sensitivity are many. The most common are receding gums, tooth decay or tooth grinding. It would be reasonable to discuss this with your general dentist.
