What Causes Pressure In Jaw?

Hi, I'm a female, age of 19. I've been having some serious discomfort in my jaw--pressure in my top jaw, through the roof of my mouth, in the "hinge" and behind some of my teeth. This tension feels like it's spread down to my neck, shoulders, and under my chin. I've also been suffering from severe dry eyes, and pressure behind my eyes and right behind my nose.

I brush and floss regularly. I do smoke, but am trying to quit. I've been smoking for about 8 months. I'm an average weight. Never had any serious health complications before except for chronic migraines when really young. I just had my wisdom teeth removed in august. I am extremely stressed--full time student with job. I feel like this might all just be a part of severe stress, but i'm also worried that it could be something really serious.
