1. Problems of the jaw joint like arthritis
2. Grinding your teeth

Unfortunately, I can’t narrow it down for you without examining you first, so the best would be to see your doctor or a maxillofacial surgeon. In the meantime, you can try taking a long-acting anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® and see if it helps.
