Left jaw gets stuck, has a ripping noise. Suffering from arthritis. Reasons ?

I have arthritis , and lately it seems that it s got a lot worse in my left jaw. At first it was just getting stuck every now and again and hurting when I ate or talked a lot, but now I can t really open my mouth properly without serious pain and a strange ripping noise in my jaw. Is it just my arthritis flaring up, and therefore it will eventually go away, or do I need to do something about it?
