Pain in Jaw after wisdom tooth extraction

by Silvis

Hi, I have a lot of pain in the left side of my jaw after my wisdom tooth was extracted. Its very difficult to keep my mouth open for a long time. I can only open it for a few seconds before my jaw starts to hurt. I cannot chew or brush my teeth like before. I also hear a popping sound on the left side of the jaw when I try to open my mouth. Could this be because of a disc displacement?. I also went to pain management and the doctor gave me an injection but I still have a lot of pain. I cannot afford to see a TMJ specialist , Is there a cure for this type of pain without having to see a TMJ specialist?

Thank you
Silvia
