 Oddly enough, I'm going through the same thing right now.
I can't tell if it's my teeth, or my jaw. Either way, my jaw, ear and head are killing me! :(

Feel better soon!

Try getting a cheap night guard and see how that helps. I use to wake up super tired with bad headaches and sometimes my jaw felt like it would fall off. It was from clenching and grinding my teeth at night.

the clicking and popping is the muscle in your jaw... caused from too much tension. It's what my dentist told me.

I didn't think I was. I don't do it during the day. When I got my night gaurd my teeth actually shifted into a straighter alignment. :-) At least the next time you go to the doctor, ask them and they can take an extra look and see what they say
