Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   how can I help you?
User :   I woke up this morning with a pain in the right side of my jaw. I can't open my mouth all the way and if I try it feels like something's lodged in the hinge. Occasionally, my mouth will open all the way on it's own, but once I close my mouth, it will go back to only opening halfway. What should I do?
Doctor :   Let me read
Doctor :   Is this the first time happening?
User :   Yeah
Doctor :   Did you take any medicine?
User :   No, not yet
Doctor :   Does it pain at your ear
User :   No.
Doctor :   You can take ADVIL 400mg
