having constant headaches Could this be TMJ?

For the past few months (since June) I've been having constant headaches on the side, back, and top of my head on the right side and occasionally left. My ears were hurting and felt achey around that time and they'd buzz, sensitive teeth, watery eyes, and now it generally aches where the part near the temple that bulges out when you eat. Also my jaw will sometimes pop if I open it up to fast and will stay like that for awhile. I'm waiting for it to be a little more cooler outside before I go to the doctor (and when my parents have money because I'm only 16 and don't have a job yet) to see if that contributes anything to it. But I was just wondering if my symptoms could possibly be TMJ so I don't think of the "other" conclusion that people usually jump at.

It sure sounds like TMJ. I wonder if your wisdom teeth are coming in and causing a shift in your bite. But check the list of TMJ symptoms. You will alsofind lots of treatment options worth trying. Best of luck to you.
