In brief: No

No. More likely upper respiratory infection.
See your MD if symptoms persist.

In brief: 2 separate problems

1. See your PCP for sore throat caused by postnasal drip evaluation.
2. See your dentist for TMJ consultation and treatment.

In brief: Could also be sinus

Difficult to say what is going on without a history and exam. It could be a sinus issue (infection, etc.
) I would see a Dr. first. TMJ/TMD can lower resistance to other ailments when flaring up.
