Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma’am,

I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but this is probably due to tempromandibular joint arthritis.. I would recommend that you take an anti-inflammatory medication as declofenac once daily for 10 days. If no relive then you should get an X-ray on your temoromandibular joint to detect the cause of pain..

I hope you find this helpful. If you don’t have any other clarifications then please close the discussion.
