i cant open my mouth after my wisdom tooth removal...

I recently had my bottom two wisdom teeth removed and i cant open my mouth more than an inch. When i try to open my mouth it feels like something in my gums is being pulled. It feels the worst in my gums under the tooth fourth from the back so i don't think its pain from getting my wisdom teeth taken out, but maybe from having my mouth open too long? I don't know if it needs to be stretched or if i need to rest.
