Our expert says:
What you are describing is possibly inflammation of the tempero mandibular joint where the jaw attaches to the skull. Press just in front of your ear, and feel if it is tender if you open and close your mouth? Your GP can have a quick look to confirm if this is the problem and only refer you to an ENT specialist if needed ( costs about 4 x as much as seeing the GP!)
