Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,it's not normal.

And it's good to evaluate and get thoroughly physical examination by your doctor to rule out Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) syndrome,Trigeminal neuralgia.

You should take OTC Advil.

Also try moist heat or cold packs on your face.

See your doctor ASAP rather than watchful wait.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
