For something like this, it's really better to get a professional to have a look. Sometimes people clench or grind their teeth at night, and that can aggravate jaw pain. Uncomfortable pillows can also can neck and jaw tightness.
Really though, a doctor or a dentist if you suspect you grind your teeth is the best person to ask, since they can prescribe treatment if necessary.
