OK TMJ is pain in the Temporal mandibular Joint (or TMJ) for short. Since you have braces, you have your teeth putting pressure on that short. However, there are many other causes of TMJ and one of those may be affecting you.
The most common cause of TMJ is actually a misalignment between your head and neck. If your head is sitting where it is lightly “tipped” it can cause TMJ pain and symptoms. I would recommend that you ask your parents to go to a chiropractor to see if your occiput (pronounced oxi-put) is misaligned. Once this is realigned, your TMJ should get better.
I really wish you the best
