From my c5/c6 fusion , and facet athropathy c3-c5 , perineural cyst, from any of that . Will that cause Tmj pain (jaw pain) that I’m having now for a year now ?

Jaw pain is typically generated by the trigeminal nerve (a cranial nerve) or by a jaw disorder. It is quite rare to have any facial pain caused by a cervical nerve or joint problem.
