Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic and thanks for putting up the query.
You are probably suffering from jaw joint inflammation. It is not a permanent disease and is treatable with medicines.
Please send me the picture of the xray done and tell me what medicine have you been taking so far.
Avoid chewing any hard things like nuts for few days.
Take calcium supplements.
Mouth opening is adequate.
Any history of tobacco chewing?
If you still have any doubts, you are always welcome with any questions.
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Take care
