Can TMJ cause morning nausea? I was diagnosed with TMJ in 2005, never had issues until recently, swimming in 60 degree lake for hours. Now since returning I have pain in TMJ location for 4 days (right side jaw, right temple and sometimes neck)

Hard to say without a thorough history and exam. You may have some sort on inner ear issue caused by the swimming.

In brief: Pain near TMJ

This sounds like a possible ear infection, but it is impossible to diagnose accurately without a clinical examination.
See your physician or an ENT specialist for an examination.

In brief: Swimmers ear?

Because of the lengthy time in the water, you might have external otitis or swimmer ear.
Have your MD or an ENT doc check it out.

In brief: Possible

you can not rule the Tmj issue with your history, but swimming in the cold water could have triggered something, it is possible that you are just having an ear infection.
Please consult with your medical doctor and with your Tmj specialist.
