 TMJ disorder.. I have it too.. only its very bad and I no longer have any cartilage left in my right joint, and I have arthritis.  it sucks and there really isn't much that can be done.

I had it for years because of short jaw. Ended up having to have my lower jaw broken and moved forward and screwed in place to stop the destruction of the bone and joints so that I wouldn't have lock jaw and arthritis later in life.

Yup, TMJ. If you go to the dentist, they should give you steroids to bring down the swelling and should make you a mouth piece so your jaw can have a break. 

TMJ is basically when there is no cartilage in your jaw. The mouth piece really helps.
