Does this sound like TMJ?

Almost CONSTANT pain/pressure on right side of temple. Can't stand it. Sometimes ears feel clogged up, but swabbing them with Q-tips helps. Horrid muscle pain in right neck, shoulder, hip, and even elbow. Pretty much the whole right side aches! Weather changes makes it a lot worse. Stress makes it worse too. Body is acidic when tested (around 6.0) with strips. I'm very "unbalanced" and trip over my own two feet! Sometimes I have ringing in ears. Jaws pop when opening wide-feels "out of joint" I have had this pain for years, and have been to many doctors. Been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, but I'm starting to think this is not it! Have been tested for arthritis and lupus, both are negative! I think this could be TMJ related, but I thought TMJ is pain on BOTH sides, not just one side! Or is it? I don't have dental insurance, but wanted to know if anyone has had any success with those mouth guard things you can get at drugstores? Or is there anything else cheap that would help this horrid, one-sided pain I have every single day?
