Dental Implant caused much grief!

For the past 8 months, following a dental implant of tooth #18, I have had a few problems.  Most recently, and after many doctors appointments, I have pinpointed my agony to Left Ear Eustacia clicking with ache in front of my ear down the side to under my left jaw.  I don't believe it is my TMJ.  I really think it is perhaps nerve injury from the injections and implant procedure.  My brain is focused on this area day and night.  The discomfort has not gone away.  CT of soft tissue came up normal.  ENT says everything looks normal.  Oral surgeon has discharged me stating nothing else he can do.  My dentist is hesitant to crown the implant, and I must agree, at this time.  Please help with any suggestions.  Tooth #19 in front of the implant is now being compromised and starting to feel sensitive to hot/cold.  BUT, I am sure that this is not the culprit to my 8 month ordeal.  Thanks in advance.

Did the dentist check for tmj?   You might want to have the dentist treat you for tmj just in case, using a splint or night guard.  How long was the tooth missing?  That can change the bite a lot.   Also, a  rare titanium allergy gives symptoms such as a rash anywhere and/or acne.
