Hi, it could be due temporo mandibular joint disorders.. Signs and symptoms of TMJ disorders may include: Pain or tenderness of your jaw, Aching pain in and around your ear, Difficulty chewing or discomfort while chewing, Aching facial pain, Locking of the joint, making it difficult to open or close your mouth... In some cases, the symptoms of TMJ disorders may go away without treatment. If your symptoms persist, your doctor may recommend a variety of treatment options... Avoid overuse of jaw muscles. Eat soft foods. Cut food into small pieces. Steer clear of sticky or chewy food. Avoid chewing gum..Consult Ent surgeon...
