Unhappy Symptoms - HELP

I have been diagnosed with TMJ for some time now. Within the last year my symptoms are getting bad. Please tell me if anyone else experience the following?

Sever Neck pain
TMJ joint hurts to touch
Ear pain and itching
Everytime I swallow it feels like my ears need to pop, plus I feel a weird almost clicking sound at the top of my throat that goes away for about 10 seconds after I yawn and my jaw cracks (this one really bothers me - anyone else experience this?).

Am I crazy or are these all symptoms of TMJ -- especially the throat one?

Re: Symptoms - HELP

Yes, those are all symptoms. Especially the ear problems and my neck kills me. Please research and find someone that knows about TMJ. I am just starting to get some help- and after a lot of research I have found another dentist in my area that I may go to for a 2nd consult( neither dentist I have found have been advertised my the phone book) Take Care.

Re: Symptoms - HELP

Where can I get info on these symptoms? My left jaw, ear and cheekbone are growing larger than the right, and I have an exact vertical line down my face where I feel numbness, pain and pins and needles only on the left, none on the right. I have been blown off by dentists for abpout 10 years, and I now cant chew.

I cant bite with my molars and I have excruciating pain in my left ear and jaw, and my ear is twice the size of my right ear. My dentist took impressions and had the lab make a night guard, which has simply matched the existing faulty bite, making it worse. I went to the neurologist after waiting 4 months to get in and he took 17 x rays of my jaws. i have scheduled, over the next 3 weeks:

an endodontist
a periodontist
MRI--to check the numbness and paresthesia in my left face
neuro electric test for muscle pain and weakness on the left neck and side

I need to get back to work, and I'm frustrated. Where can I go to get help?
