Pain and dysfunction: If the tmj/tmd issues last for awhile, some symptoms can affect the ear (s) in many ways. You may develop ringing in the ears; earaches, popping-grating-clicking that is heard constantly in the ears; roaring muffled sounds; hearing loss; on and on. It is better to see an ENT first if you have ear symptoms to rule out it being the ears as the source of the problem. ...Read more

A Few Things: With that history it could be many things...Most likely causes include... 1. Tmj disorder 2. Sinusitis 3.Ear infection i would recommend a md visit first to check ear and sinuses, then dentist if those are ok. This is common as pain in the head can come from many sources and the actual cause can take a bit of diagnostic detective work. ...Read more

See your dentist: Dentists specialize in treating facial issues. See your dentist and have them evaluate you for bruxism, an abscessed tooth, trigeminal neuralgia, or TMJ. Your symptoms could be a wide range of issues. Your dentist should be able to help you figure out what is wrong or can point you in the direction of a specialist who can. Best of luck :) ...Read more

Please tell me if TMJ can cause right side facial numbness ear and jaw pain?

Yes, It's Possible: Problems within the tm joint can cause a huge variety of symptoms, which differ from person to person. Ear and jaw pain are very common. Facial tingling and numbness are less common, but still possible. Unfortunately, there's really no proven way for you to take care of this problem yourself. You need to see a dentist who's experienced with TMJ problems. Get help before your symptoms worsen! ...Read more

I was eating something crunchy when I suddenly got jaw pain on the left side near my ear whenever I clench my teeth. Is this something I can wait out?

Be careful: You could have strained your left TMJ when you were eating. If the range of motion of your jaw is not affected and you experience no pain/discomfort or popping/clicking in the joint when you open and close and if you don't notice a change in your bite then you can expect it to get better. Just eat a softer diet, try taking an NSAID like advil and alternate between hot/cold compress on the joint. ...Read more
