In brief: Go to your dentist.

Tmj are usually treated initially by dentists.
Warm compresses sometimes help . The dentist will determine if there are poor alignments in the teeth and may prescribe splints. Psychological help can help by relaxation techniques and muscle relaxants. There are other medications used as well when the usual treatment does not work. Good luck.
