you seem to be suffering from acute temporomandibular  joint dysfunction which usually occurs secondary to acute injury to the joint or inflammation of structures around the joint. treatment usually involves simple analgesic, local antiinflammatory creams, hot compressed and very importantly soft diet for couple of weeks so that you allow time for joint to heal.
interarticular steroid can be used for resistant cases

It is Idiopathic TMJ Neuralgia. You may need an intra-articular steroid injection to relieve the pain and inflammation immediately. Go to an ENT Surgeon near your home to help you out.
