Found out that I could not put any food in my mouth because of a shooting pain going from the lower
jaw up to before the ear. It caused this area to be tender and puffy. I could talk, swallow, and make a chewing motion so it appeared it didn't have to do with TMJ. No eating except water. The second day, it moved to the left side with the right still being tender. The third day, both were tender but getting better. I massaged, did warm compresses, took meds.
