In brief: Partial

You have some TMJ symptoms.
But left side face and arm numbness not TMJ. See your MD immediately to make sure nothing bad ishappening. If negative, see a TMJ expert.

In brief: Yes it can

While there are several conditions that can bring on these signs and symptoms, when they occur in combination, there is a high likelihood that TMJ is a causative factor. Try to find a dentist who has specialized knowledge in the pain release splint technique and is well-versed in myofascial trigger point therapy for best results.
A neuromuscular approach is superior in my opinion.

While TMJ related facial pain and ear fullness are common, arm pain--particularly LEFT arm pain--is definitely not. One thing clinicians can overlook is that patients can have two things occur simultaneously--TMJ related pain and either orthopedic or heart related arm pain. TMJ pain is worthy of management, but arm symptoms demand evaluation for orthopedic/neurological spine or heart issues

In brief: TMJ syndrome

Temporo-mandibular syndrome is the second most frequent cause of orofacial pain after dental pain.
Headache, earache, sinus pain, neck pain and numbness are the common symptoms. Proper diagnosis is the key to successful treatment. See Orofacial Pain practitioner for a consultation and treatment options.
