Hello, I went through your query it may be caused by either chewing gum, clenching the jaw from stress, and grinding your teeth during sleep.Jaw pain can also be caused by a sinus infection. Another common cause of jaw pain is a toothache or periodontal disease, or due to ear infection. Nothing to worry, you need to consult a physician to examine the cause and to treat accordingly.
