In brief: Probably your jaw

Every symptom you're describing can be explained by your jaw being in spasm. If your teeth are off, if you clench or grind your teeth, if you chew a lot of gum or are under a lot of stress you can make it much worse.
Try a soft diet, anti-inflammatories and ice to the sides of your head and jaw to help alleviate the symptoms. You should also make a dental appointment.
