Headache on impact?

I'm 17 years old. Recently i've developed tmj which left me with most of the classic symtoms. Jaw pain, headaches, stiff neck, popping of the jaw (etc.) The main problem i have is that i am a boxer. (I started after I noticed my tmj symptoms). When sparring i can take any shot to my eyes, nose, and forehead but whenever im hit on the jaw i get an immediate migraine. After doing some research online and on boxing forums i've found that it is not normal to get an immediate headache for around 15 20 seconds after taking a shot on the chin. Is this something that I could link to my TMJ. Is this type of thing common? Or should i be concerned about a bigger issue.
Thank you
