TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint board

I know what your going thru. My jaw starting hooking the day after thanksgiving and it freaked me out. NOt only did hurt, it was startling. It would actually stay locked for a second or two.
It eventually just got better with rest and eating really soft foods. You have to stop chewing and Ibuprofin and muscle relaxers help.
I also had an mouth piece made. The dentist thought I might be clenching at night b/c of stress, etc/
It definitely got better but it has yet to go away. I still get little clicks and I have yet to yawn a big, normal yawn. My jaw even cliked when kissing my husband...so sad.
I also found Valium to help. Good luck.
