So a week and a half ago after a long camp in which 12 hours practices were done, it left my chops in an odd state. One thing that was strange was noticeable pain in my jawline and difficulty performing in the upper register of my instrument.

A week before the camp itselfI was playing high C's all day and it felt great, and after a lot of thinking, I've decided to put my horn away for a few days.

Three days later, I write this post and I still feel pain in my jawline and well as general discomfort, and I was wondering if anyone knew what to do before I pick up the horn again in two days.

Thank you all in advance!

I want to also mention that the pain I experience is indeed pain, not soreness and I also feel it is important to mention that my pain is much less noticeable when I am actually playing my instrument.

If the injury is slowly getting better, then probably just give it more time. See if you can do easy playing in low/mid range w/o any discomfort - maybe now is a good time for soft controlled long note practice.

It might take weeks (months?) for it to fully heal, so don't try to rush it. And plan your schedule so you're not committed to perform.

Do that. If there is any pain at all in light playing I’d even say take a break from that. Pain is a big warning sign that something is going on and should NEVER be ignored. Also see a doctor.
