Yes. May be ur last part of the jaw,called condyle is fractured. Its a serious issue, please don't delay much. Get an OPG Xray done and show it to me so that i can suggest you the best possible treatment for u

Whether there is a fracture or not can be said only after getting an XRAY done. But going by what you have told us there is a high likeliness that there might be a fracture. Kindly have yourself checked by a good Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon who is the concerned specialist for such problems. He will be able to help you the best.

Please consult an Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon. They will ask you to get some xrays done to confirm, or rule out, jaw fracture(s).
