In brief: Lockjaw and Tetanus
Stiffness in your jaw muscles, also called trismus, is usually the first symptom of tetanus to develop.
This is sometimes known as lockjaw. However, if your issue was in 2003 other cause of trismus including dental infection could be the reason. See your dentist for evaluation.

In brief: Tetanus jaw lock
i don't believe the jaw locking is in relation to tetanus as this disease occurred in 2003? I would recommend a consultation with your dentist for possible TMJ issues or your physician about this matter possible arthritis maybe another factor?
