In brief: TMJ ?
Although there are several possible explanations, including bruxism (grinding teeth together during sleep), tempo-mandibular joint disease must be considered.
See your doctor.

In brief: Classic
The description appears to be classic tmj/tmd caused by bruxism (grinding of the teeth at night.
) if it occurs quite often, you should see a dentist/tmj specialist to exam and try and diagnose the cause of the bruxism and possibly make a custom mouthpiece to help you with the headaches and protect your teeth and tongue.
