Tight jaw muscles are going to give you pains like that. The pains won't let the jaw open and/or close without pain. to get rid of the pain you have to free up your jaw muscles and here's how to do that:
Jaw muscles, TMJ:
Place your fingers on your head so your thumbs are behind your ears. Press into the back of your jaw next to the skull and hold that pressure. After 30 seconds, slowly raise your head until your neck is fully extended,. then open your mouth as far as you can. Release the pressure but hold your head and mouth like that for another 30 seconds.
For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
First consult your dentist--there may be an infection. Antibiotics or root canal treatment should help.
I do not know what your age is--so my personal experience may not be relevant to you. I am 70+.I had the same type of problem and it was dignosed as mandibular arthritis. I got relief through pain relievers meant for Arthritis.
I am suffering from arthritis of the knee joint also.
There are exercises which relieve arthritis--especially mandibular.
Anyway CONSULT A DOCTOR.
