Bottom of jaw hurt, cheek swelled, mouth pain. What could it be?

Just a few days ago the bottom half of my jaw hurt, but only the jawline seemed to ache, but it didn't hurt to eat only if i put pressure on it. The pain went away and I felt like my cheek could have been swollen, but I figured it was from me just pinching it and patting so much as I tried to see if it was just my imagination. Now I feel like my mouth aches, sort of like how it feels if you chew gum for too long. What could it be?
