Hi I went through your previous query and this one as well. Reading all I feel it's trismus. With stiff muscles you might be having difficulty in opening your mouth and it will be painful when you try to open it . It can be due to long dental procedures where the patient has to open wide mouth for longer duration or wrong injection site ( in your case during extraction) Treatment is muscle relaxants and forces jaw opening Regards

How did jaw pain start ? Was it sudden or slow to start.? Give a visit to one more doctor give correct detailed history. Medicines can be given based on your history and clinical examination.
