I am one year post TT, had RAI x2. Two months ago I noticed a pea size lump in my right cheek, which became painful. About the same time, I noticed occasionally a very salty taste in my mouth, coming from the right side of my mouth, near my wisdom teeth. This salty taste was as if I had squirted a salty solution in my mouth. It's very odd. I went to the dentist and was told it was a clogged salivary gland. The lump resolved, however I continue to experience what I now call "salt bursts". Last week I was eating (nothing unusual) when I had a heaviness along the right side of my jaw, then the salty burst came, followed by immediate swelling under my right ear and jaw area. At first I thought maybe I was having some kind of cardiac issue, but when the swelling started I went and took liquid Benadryl. The right side of my jaw was so swollen it was putting pressure on my ear... Since then, I have had several episodes when it felt like my jaw was going to swell, I had pressure on that side, but nothing happened. I called my Endo, and like all the other oddities I had experienced over the last year, said it had nothing to do with my thyroid or treatment and suggested i go to ENT... passing the buck. Just wondering if anyone else ever experienced anything like this.
