Only when I eat, though. Something in the left side
of my face
swells up and when I touch it, it feels almost numb. This has been going on for more than 6 mos. But, now just last night, my jaw has started hurting. I can forget about yawning b/c the more I open it the more it hurts. I can eat but my bites have to be small. This is really wierd to me. I don't know where to go for this. Dentist, Oral DR, Ear, nose, mouth? What does this sound like and where should I go?
