Could severe headaches, ranging in type and location, be caused by wisdom teeth coming in? I also have jaw stiffness, and tooth pain.

In brief: Maybe

As impacted or misaligned wisdom teeth try to erupt and grow, the put tremendous pressure to the teeth in front of them increasing the frequency of nightime clenching and this can be a source of facial pain and headaches.

In brief: Possible

An erupting wisdom tooth can cause pain in the jaw radiating to the ear.
The only way to know for certain if you are experiencing wisdom tooth pain or something else is with a dental exam. See a dentist and get this checked.
