How long can a TMJ sore throat/pain last?

I, finally, went to a ENT Wednesday after my ear and throat hurting for a month and he verified my TMJ in both jaws.

I have had this all my life but just recently started having pain a month ago. Left Ear dull ache. Occasional shooting pain and left side sore throat.

He felt my neck and looked in my throat and gave me instructions on how do relieve the pain.

Told me to take Aleve (of course it does nothing. It's like eating candy)

My question is, will this ever go away?  I've never experienced anything like this so I'm just sore of in a state of panic. This has been a horrible month.

Does anyone have any kind of advice of what I can do to help the pain?
