Unable to fully open mouth

I am 28, 17 days back when i got up i found that i can’t open my mouth fully something stiffs my right jaw but it got okay within an hour..
But the next day it occurred again..from that day till now i can’t open my mouth fully...
My dentist says that its due to tensed muscle..so he recommended me some muscle relaxion tablets (Zix MR)...for the first 4 days i was able to open my mouth fully only in the morning and whenever i open my mouth i heard a click sound while opening and closing(which goes lighter on the fourth day)...but after two three times it again got stucks..Than my dentist suggests me some another tablet (Mayotop 150mg) and told me to give some rest to the mouth (do not try to open fully for some days)..i did this...after that but its not opening even in the morning now…

I have got this problem many times before also for the last 4-5 years but it used to gets okay on its own within few minutes. This used to happen when I yawn or opens my mouth fully (I guess). In April 2009 I got my wisdom tooth removed (right side lower jaw). After extraction this problems never occurred (till Now ) even if I yawn or tries to open my mouth fully.

I got this problem more in winter season than in summer seasons. There is no swelling no pain in my jaw..no problem while eating also..but I can open my mouth fully..and if I try I found stretch in my right jaw..and if I try beyond that it hurts a lot..i feel pain in my ear…I hav even gone to ENT also for ear checkup…he again suggested me some MR tablets.

I thought it may be TMJ but my dentist denies this…

I am getting fed up of this… when it will get okay…
Whats the cause for this….

Plz Help…..

I think I may have a similar problem, if not the same. But the confusing part, i'm 15. I don't know if I can have TMJ (hopefully not) or what. I'm thinking it might just be stress. Yesterday was a particularly stressful day, having to evacuate my home because of fire danger. I'm thinking that it's probably me stressed out and the muscles in my jaw are acting strange. Another bit of info, I tend to clench my teeth a lot of times. Might have an affect.

for mouth not opening
my uncle is dentist
he suggested a lot's of people for open mouth easily who eat supari ,gutka and etc

first : apne haath ki 2 unglita apne mouth me daalo aur usko 10 min tak dhale rakho aur fir mouth open karne ki koshish karo ( 7-10 days)
after that : you can try with 3 finger or 4 finger
if you able

and one thing remember never eat supari , gutka etc
take some healthy food
like tomato , anar , kheera
