How long will a jaw stay locked??

I woke up five days ago with my jaw locked I can't even get it to open enough to eat from a spoon. I went to hospital they kept me for four days and didn't know why it is doing this or how long or what I can do to make it easier. I have tried massage like it says on line and heat. The pain is still there and it's doesn't help. Some days I can't even get a straw through to drink out of. Any suggests on what to do would be great and how long this could last would be nice also.
