Hello and welcome to HCM
This is dr XXXXXXX jaiswal answering your query. I have thoroughly gone through your condition.
I think it can be related to excess stress.
Are you taking any medication also?
Do you have any other medical conditions - if yes, plz mention in your medical history.
Stress can cause grinding and clenching of teeth called bruxism, which can lead to pain in tmj neck and teeth. Further stress is a common cause for apthous ulcers also.
If I were your treating doctor I would first advice you to live a stress free life. A muscle relaxant can help reduce the pain - your local doctor can prescribe it to you as and when required. If you have history of bruxism night guard can be used by a dentist. Beside that, I also recommend multivitamins such as nutrolin B plus capsules can be taken thrice daily for 15 days for soreness and ulcers.
In short, you need to further explore the possibility of TMJ disorder as you try the aforementioned options. Start measures to control stress.
Hope this answer satisfies your query.
