When I keep moving my jaw back and forth, a clicking sound occurs. I am 15 years old and not sure if it is normal. I fear that I have a TMJ problem, and I cannot visit a dentist at this moment. I am really stressed, and I need help. It is very addicting, and I cannot stop. What can I do to stop it? When I chew, my jaw clicks, and it is annoying, and I am getting a slight pain. What should I do? My jaw did get locked once.

Good evening. I hope you are well. Thank you for approaching icliniq. I saw your query. I will help you to solve the issue.
A clicking sound can be due to temporomandibular disorders. Temporomandibular disorders can be due to the way of chewing and frequently moving the jaws. So, I advise you to take certain anti-inflammatory drugs. I will suggest the drug name after knowing your medical history.
I need an orthopantomogram for the construction of the night guards. For mild pain, there is no need to take painkillers.
Thank you. Have a nice day.
