I believe this is what you are looking for in regards XXXXX XXXXX: http://emj.bmj.com/content/25/7/435/F1.large.jpg

Several symptoms can indicate that a toothache is actually caused by tmj including:

1. A clicking or popping noise of the jaw when chewing or opening the mouth.
2. Pain in the jaw joint area, neck and shoulders.
3. Headache or ear ache.
4. Inability to open the mouth very wide
5. Locking jaw

Applying ice or hot packs can help reduce muscle tension and relieving tmj tooth pain. Also, a soft diet is helpful. Surgery is only used in cases of severe structural damage of the joint.

Expert:  Chris C. replied 1 year ago.
Acute sinus disease (sinusitis) may be associated with air-fluid levels which if present commonly occur in the maxillary sinuses.

Tonsillitis refers to inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsils. The inflammation may involve other areas of the back of the throat including the adenoids and the lingual tonsils (areas of tonsil tissue at the back of the tongue). There are several variations of tonsillitis: acute, recurrent, and chronic tonsillitis and peritonsillar abscess.Viral or bacterial infections and immunologic factors lead to tonsillitis and its complications.

Other infectious processes or an altered immune system since the tonsils are part of the immune system. Having your thyroid removed would not caused tonsillitis unless the procedure was performed very recently.
