In brief: Stop chewing
Soft diet, antiinflammatories, ice, dental evaluation.
No gum ever again. There is a special mouth guard called an nti device that your dentist can make that is especially helpful.

In brief: Treat TMJ
Treat the underlying TMJ problem. True dizziness (spinning) not caused by TMJ.
If you have spinning, see a neurologist or ENT doc.

In brief: Dizziness
This is not normally associated with tm disorders.
This is more likely related to inner-ear disorders and you should consult an ent.Ear.

In brief: Dizziness is tricky
Dizziness associated with a tmj/tmd ailment can occur, but is not necessarily a common symptom. I get referrals from ent's quite often, and the equilibrium (balance) may be compromised by a TMJ element.
But you should definitely have an ENT examine you first prior to considering TMJ as the main cause.
