I am not sure what's going on but this is the story. I have TMJD that seems to get worse when my sinuses are blocked. I currently can't lay on my left side, my temple, the ear, the cheek and behind my ear just aches and I get shooting pain in my ear. I know it's not an ear infection, I have had this before, but this time it's pretty bad. Both cheeks hurt and so does the right ear but not as bad as the left. I am congested but when I blow my nose, it;s all clear. I am probably gong to give up my health insurance within a week since I just can't pay for it any longer, so I am uncertain of what to do. Could it be an infection without the colored mucous? Any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks.
