Thanks for your query,

If you are having temporomandibular dysfunction then at first the cause has to be found...

Pain killer will give short term relief.. but you have to treat the cause...

Consult with oral and maxillofacial surgeon...OPG (Orthopantomogram) is required for you...

You may have malocclusion also...

Get well soon...
