It seems a problem with the joint movement, consult a maxillofacial surgeon who will guide you to get a Transpharyngeal Open & Closed mouth to get it done & will evaluate the Temporomandibular joint. Symptomatic treatment will be given after that
Next Steps
Get your Temporomandibular joint checked by maxillofacial Surgeon
Health Tips
Do not take hard food like nuts & do not take self medication with taking an expert opinion.
