Unhappy Temporal pain

I have been experiencing a lot of jaw pain for quite sometime but in the past three weeks I have a new symptom: left side temporal pain and it's like a stabbing pain felt when I chew food, swallow water and talk. Is this a normal pain with TMJ? Worries me to pieces because I can't see a doctor until Jan (no insurance).

Also, paid $230 to see an oral surgeon and was told I do not have TMJ but I think I do. The day I went I was able to open my jaw 50mm. It was a good day but some days I can't open that wide.

Re: Temporal pain

The temporalis muscle is one of the major jaw muscles so if one of them is sore it's a clear indication that the bite is off. The bite needs to work in a balance so both sides are evenly loaded.
