Jaw pain and stiffness but no tooth-is it wisdom tooth?

Hi
I'm 26 year old female. Had three wisdom teeth out three years ago but final (upper) tooth was way up in the bone at time so couldn't do anything with it. Have pain and stiffness in my jaw for the last few days. Symptoms are same as before when I used get gum infections where food was sticking in gums around impacted teeth. Only this time the tooth isn't broken through at all, I can't feel it at all so don't think it's near breaking through. This happened me about 2 years ago but by time I got to see my surgeon again pain was gone so he couldn't tell me cause. I'm reluctant to shell out 100 plus euro for a useless minute long consultation again with a dentist who is more concerned with cash counting than patient care. Appreciate if dentist here might let me know if u think it's wisdom tooth back to haunt me?
Thanks :)

Not able to tell without seeing your mouth and some x-rays, sorry.
