Is getting a knot next to the ear at the jaw a normal part of TMJ/TMD or does it need treatment?

I wish, I'd be less worried. This is too far up and sitting in the jaw joint where when I open my mouth it sends pain into my jaw.
Also if you have a Spoonk (acupuncture mat) and you lay your face on it the knot may be relieved. I had a full day of being able to open my mouth once after the acupuncture :p
I had horrible issues with TMJ as a teen. This is not something that is normally there and my jaw hurts to open. I also have a headache but can not tell if this is related or from recent concussion. Thanks!
With your questions, concerns and current symptoms, and your recent concussion, you should see a medical provider such as your primary care physician, physical therapist or the last provider you saw for these issues.
Thank you. Just didn't know if it would be silly to go to Dr for something so minor.
