In brief: May not be related

Migraines may or may not be related to the jaw pain but there could be a connection.
Best advise is to seek a dental consultation for the jaw pain. It could be the joint, muscle issues or a tooth issue.

In brief: Consider TMJ

Many TMJ patients have headaches.
Patients often call any bad headache "migraine". If your headaches are worse whenever your jaw pain is worse. strongly suggestive of TMJ. See TMJ expert

In brief: Stop and Review...

This drug works by narrowing the widened and inflamed cranial and basilar arteries associated with migraines.
Because your jaw pain may be caused either (1) by the narrowing of your coronary arteries as a side effect of this drug, or by (2) a misdiagnosed cluster headache (not a migraine), it's best to see a headache specialist to help you make a more informed decision about using this drug..
