In brief: Pain in arm or neck

Not likely to get pain in the arm or neck from a brain tumor without having signs of brain stem dysfunction.
There are other conditions that need to be considered. Chiari malformation can produce tingling in neck and shoulders with headaches. You might have a couple of unrelated problems producing a confusing clinical picture. (separate neck and ear problem). A good examination might be in order.

In brief: Unlikely

Unlikely brain tumor.
But get neurology evaluation to make sure. TMJ can mimic many problems. Make sure your TMJ is being managed by TMJ expert. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. Ask your MD, your dentist and your dental society for referrals.
