Hi..TMJ disorder is always very painful. It can solved by wearing night guard and undergo teeth alignment procedure (braces). Otherwise it can get even more worse leading to surgery as well. Visit Orthodontist ASAP. Regards

You seem to be having a problem with the  TMJ..... this condition needs specific x-rays for the correct diagnosis and sometimes the help of MRI is also required..... these can be best evaluated by an oral surgeon and then the right treatment can be advised to you.... Regards.....

You need to have a consultation with the oral&maxillofacial surgeon with a OPG x-ray.Later on,if required,then only you should go for MRI.Some muscle relaxant and pain killer you can take for the time being.

You seem to having a TMJ issue which are  the most difficult to treat .A symptomatic treatment includes pain killers,, ultrasounds,, restriction  to soft diet etc but an MRI  would help locate the causative factor  and an appropriate  planning can be done so  kindly do the necessary investigations
