I suggest you seek medical advice. I regularly have lock jaw but it only lasts a few minutes at the most and usually only when I get up in the morning. I also have a painful click in the right hand side of my jaw. But it's no surprise as I've had problems with my jaw since the year dot. But if it is a relatively new problem for yourself, Get it checked out. MB
grinding your teeth in your sleep maybe? Some other things can lead to restricted jaw movement too but I daren't even say it cleanly or thread will get pulled today.
Lockjaw is a specific, very serious infection - otherwise called tetanus.

It is doubtful you have this. :)

See your doctor.
There's a very similar question further down, there may be some useful answers on there also.
