Question tmj wth.minor head injury

So I've been clentching my teeth for about 2 years. I wentto a urgent care they told me I have tmj. But 2 months ago an iron fell from my shelf and hit my head . I went to the ER and they said I only have a small cutt ( size of a half of a meter) its on top of my head. I didn't get a ct scan ad went home. A week laer I went to my doctor to get a check up and he said I didn't need a ct scan cause it wasn't ahuge head injury... but those first couple weeks, I didn't feel right. (But my doc said tht was normal) now, its been 2 months and I have scalp pain (on top of my head) slight head ache. Nck pain, sore jaw, pressure in ears and sometimes head... I'm going to a specialist fr tmj Tuesday to check out the problem... and going t my doctor to let him know about the problem in two weeks... I'm afraid...should I get the ct scan (and pay the 1000$ fee?) Or is it just my tmj... plus I've had a lot of anxiety in the past 3 weeks aswell...thanks
