Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

What you describe here sounds like a problem in your temporomandibular joints -- either in the joint itself or its capsule. Any good NSAI will help this along. If not you may need intra-articular steroid injections.

This does not explain your wine intolerance which I do not have an answer for.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
