pressure in face and dizziness!!

I'm new to this board and I'm wondering if tmj is my problem. Since October of 2011 I have had daily ongoing dizziness, intense "sinus" pressure that never goes away, tight jaw muscles that won't relax, daily headaches, pain behind my eye and throat tightness. My jaw muscles get so tight that it affects my ability to form words, which is a concern for me as I speak for a living. I've been cleared for MS by a neurologist and cleared for any sinus pathology by a CT scan and ENT exam. A PT suggested it may be tmj related (my jaw clicks on the right side, the same side where my ear gets a dull ache and where my eye pain is). I just find it hard to believe that my jaw can cause such problems and wondered if anyone has suffered similar symptoms and has been successfully treated through neuromuscular dentistry. I'm see a NMD end of Sept but I know it will be loads of money to spend and would really like to hear from people who have already been through it!
