I'm a 16 year old female with the right side of my jaw locked. Is it just inflamation or lock jaw? I really can't afford surgery, but I can't eat any solid foods (which is what I mainly eat) because I can't chew. It's been like this for 2 1/2 weeks...I've been to the doctors about it, and they said that it's not a big deal until I can't eat. Then it's a problem. BUT my mother doesn't believe me and I don't have money to go to the dentist / doctor's for it. Is there any way to fix or somehow OPEN my mouth with pain?
