Welcome to HCM.
The description fits with problem at the tempero mandibular joint, a joint in the face between the jaw and the skull bone.
If persistent, kindly get checked.

this could be because of Temparo mandibular joint arthriits. you need to give adequate rest and analgesics if not contact a rheumatologist
