Need exam: Your symptoms sound like you might have temporomandibular joint pain dysfunction or TMD. If you can pinch your nose and pop your ears, you should be okay to fly, but you should have someone check you for TMD as this is a very common disorder and it's very treatable. Good luck and happy flying.
