For the last 3 days I've had jaw pain just on the right side. I've had headaches + can't open my mouth wide! Any idea why? Wisdom tooth coming through

In brief: Maxillary tooth ?

It may be that the erupting tooth is digging into your cheek and jawbone.
Let a local dentist take a look to see if it needs extraction. Most do.
