Sudden Jaw Problems

Hi there, I've been having some issues with my jaw lately.  If i move it towards the right, the left side instantly hurts.  It just started making a grinding sound while i was eating, i solved it rather quick by opening my mouth wide a couple times.  But this pain in my lower left side of my jaw is just strange. My dentist said a few months ago that there is a possibility that my wisdom teeth may grow into or just hit my jaw.  I posed that as a factor,  my neck is also out so i posed that as a factor as well, and i was told that i grind my teeth while i sleep, again a possible factor. Please help as soon as possible! I'm in pain not excruciating just with the movement.
