Hi deedeemarie, Your concerns which cover a variety of body parts are hard to relate to a TMJ and a parotid gland issue alone. These should be examined by. 1: your family doctor 2: a dentist who is experienced in these issues. Tinnitus is usely present with thes symptioms when swelling is present especially with TMJ issues.
