Grinding teeth?: It's hard to say for sure and the lump confuses matters but generally having pain on waking up in the jaws or a headache on waking is associated with grinding your teeth - which is generally done while we are sleeping. In any event, because of the lump, you need to see your dentist - try to make the appointment first thing in the am since that's when it seems to be worse!

Lymph node: Possible localized infection that had quickly resolved is one possible option. Definitely track the occurrence and duration if it happens again.

Lymph node: Possibly a swollen lymph node that has be filtering some sort of infection/ inflammation above the jawline, get an evaluation with a dentist or physician!
