Sounds like TMJ syndrome with masticator muscle spasm. Suggest you see your ENT doctor for examination. Warm compresses over the joint, eating softer foods and a bite plate may help if you are grinding your teeth.

The symptoms you describe are definitely a TMJ disorder. Seek a TMJ specialist and place warm to hot compresses over area. Don't bite on hard foods, to keep the pressure off of the joint.
