Thank you for submitting your question. The symptoms you have is not from TMJ- usually patients with TMJ have no noticable swelling.
I suspect you may have an infection in your parotid gland( parotitis). The parotid gland is located beneath the jaw line. When it becomes infected, swelling can extend from the jawline up to the ear. You are going to need some antibiotics to clear this infection.
