Clicking jaw

Hi, about 1 week ago my right hand side jaw started clicking when i eat. It has been getting progressively worse and become more frequent and now have pain on the right hand side of my face. i had the same problem about 12 years ago, although far worse than now and was caused by grinding of teeth whilst alseep and my wisdom teeth, i have not had an issue with this till now? what do you think the issue could be, same as 12 yrs ago? thanks
