Could be. It would be prudent to see your doctor or dentist for an in-person evaluation and appropriate intervention. Wish you good health!

What you have listed could be signs/symptoms of jaw joint dysfunction, but could also describe number of other conditions. Talk to your Dentist about this to begin the diagnostic process.
