In brief: See your doctor

TMJ dysfunction can affect the ears, but beside checking with your dentist and eventually getting a night guard, you should see a physician (ENT) to rule out any other infection or condition in your ear or in the area that could cause the earaches you are describing but not necessarily related to your TMJ syndrome.
