Angry PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

I have a major problem. I have had TMJ on the left side of my jaw for like 5-6 years know and memeber how I said one time me jaw cracked and got hot, well know the other side is showing signs of TMJ!! Ear pain, jaw soreness can't even press over jaw joint or gums, and it locks a little tiny bit. My problem is I think my left side was off so it made the right side be unbalanced?? I have to see a specialist but I can't find one yet. And when I do jaw excersizes (which my mom makes me do)my jaw locks big time and does the loudest pop ever!!! Should I stop doing them? When i feel my joints and open and close my mouth my left side feels alot higher?? Please help!!!!!!!

Don't do exercises if it hurts. Put moist heat on your jaws. A warm washrag wrung out works. Only eat very soft foods. Don't chew any more than you have to. Get to a specialist as soon as you can. Put no strain whatsoever on your jaws until you can get to a specialist.

Thanks,
I don't think it is to the point where I can't touch or anything. I just don't like to press the joints and gum's themselves because it gives me discomfort. I just don't want it to get any worse. Thanks for your response.
