TMJ: It seems you're under some emotional stress. Your jaw locked up because of tempormandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ). The sour taste is probably regurgitated stomach acid. If you can't see a local dentist who does TMJ, schedule an inbox consult with me at www.healthtap.com/douglasdds. I'll try to help.
