Are pain in the jaw and refracted eardrum related?

I have been having dental issues which have just been determined to be two fractures in tooth #18 (molar), left side of jaw. There is infection and as a result, boneloss. When the pain in the mouth/jaw began, the dentist indicate I have been clinching and is building a mouth guard for me. The pain permeated up into the left ear. I saw my GP who diagnosed me with a retracted eardrum. Could these be related and do I have cause for worry. I have more pain in the ear then the jaw. I am scheduled for a root canal in the next few days.

Any pain due to injury or deep cavities in both the jaws can cause radiating pain to eat. Have you had any surgery for fracture of lower jaw?if there is pain due teeth it will be resolved by using oral guard to some extent.
