I ran across this site trying to dx. myself after far too many failed attempts by Drs. & Dentists. At times when eating the left side of my face swells as well as the bone along my lower jaw area. At times it is extremely painful, but eventually subsides. Recently while in the hosptal it happened so I called my nurse to see it. A CT was ordered but showed nothing. The swelling gets very large, makes my face also feel numb. ENT & Drntist also find nothing, but this happens many times a month. The swelling is very hard, only happens while eating and is at times very painful. This has been going on for 4 years now. Anyone, any ideas??? I am sooooo desperate for some clues. Docs are making me feel like a hypochondriac!!! Ugh!!
