In brief: Ear infection

TmJ symptoms include noises and grinding with muscle spasm and difficulties to open and close the mouth, tennitis and other ear related symptoms can be part of the TMJ problem. But numbness and leakage are rarely associated with TMJ syndrome or TMD, should check with ENT first, if nothing then check with a dentist.
Good luck.
