What causes tightness in the face?

Hello, for a year now one half of my face been feeling tight. I feel more on one half of my nose cheek bone and in front or around my ears. I have been to the E.N.T and Dentist. Im not sure if it my tmj or not. Dentist said everything look fine. Ent doctor said my hearing was fine but my deviated septum in my nose was crooked. At one point another doc said I had a sinus infection but what ever medication he was giving was not working. From the pill to the spray. At first (May 14 2013) it started as a very sharp pain to the point I couldn t go to sleep but happen to find out I had a ear infection at that time. The pain went on for a week after that my right side of my face haven t felt the same...it feel tight and my word have been slurring but I thought maybe it s bc of my overbite.
