Jaw Pain



Hello, Last night I was snacking on jelly beans and I felt and heard a noise in my right jaw. Now, I cannot open my mouth wide enough to eat properly and there is a very loud snapping sound along with moderate pain in front of my ear What can I do to relive the pain and open my mouth? Exactly, what is going on?

Thank you for your time.
