Thanks a lot for your response and patience.I am sorry for the delay and the in convince.
Your explanation and symptoms give an assurance that you don't have Temporomandibular joint
disorder symptoms which i was initially worried about.
Your intermittent and frequent jaw pain
on one side can be attributed to Myofascial Pain Dysfunction Syndrome(MPDS) or
spasm of Masseter muscle
pain is associated with musculoskeletal pain.and there can be many reasons for this pain such as poor sleep, inactivity, anxiety and stress.
Have a look at the link:http://www.clearpassage.com/pain/misc/myofascial.php
Spasm of Masseter muscle- Masseter is the muscle of mastication..And it is works while we chew our food. Often in some individuals it results in pain and discomfort, when over-exrerted. The muscle size also increases during fatigue and it results in sore muscles. This can happen intermittently form time to time and is not necessarily present all the time.
You need Muscle relaxants
for pain relief and comfort (along with Anti-inflammatory medicines such as Ibuprofen).
These drug affects skeletal muscle function and decrease the muscle tone thereby reducing pain and fatigue.
Please visit your dentist
for site evaluation and these medicines, Your dentist can guide you well by examining your jaw and visualizing the extent of soreness. Also,ask him to demonstrate jaw relaxing exercises
for you which can help prevent any muscle fatigue or soreness in future.

You can also take Vitamin C supplements
, they will help your body repair connective tissue surrounding the jaw and hasten healing.Also Try out this at home If you feel pain,You can wrap an ice pack in a towel and hold it against your jaw for 20 minutes.Repeat it as often as possible to help ease the soreness.If the pain persists for more than 36 hours, use heat pack instead of cold pack the same way..Heat increases blood flow to injured tissues and help them heal.
Also avoid chewing hard food
or biting hard on your right side of the jaw.Stick to a soft diet.
Avoid Coffee ,colas,tea.they contain caffine
which increases muscle tensions
