You probably need an anti histamine to clear up the ear.I would go with cetirizine or loratadine

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
anti allergy

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 1 year ago.
I'm saying what you are calling TMJ could be an allergy. TMJ doesn't cause ear fullnessSo try1)ibuprofen for the TMJ2)loratadine for the ear
