It sounds like if you have TMJ pain without trauma. This condition causes inflammation of the capsule of the jaw joint, usually due to a bite problem or muscle spasm. Treatment is a soft diet and warm compresses, as well as anti-inflammatory medication, i.e. Voltaren tablets.
If the problem persist, you should consult your dentist.
