Left Eye Swolen
Right Eye Periodically Twitches
Canker Sore that's getting worse
Chest Pain
Neck Pain (possibly caused by this awful chair)
Itchy Scalp (Earlier)

I have no idea whether or not any of these causes are connected.

A tooth near the canker sore is very vulnerable to infection (needs root canal - part of it broke off recently)

  • An infected tooth may certainly have something to do with it. What concerns me is your chest pain, as there is something called endocarditis, or an infection in the heart muscles, which can be caused by bacteria. The eye swelling is a concern too. Have someone take a picture of your swelling to show your doctor. Rarely, swelling as you describe yours, is associated with a hereditary problem called angioedema, which is related to dental procedures & infections. Although very rare, it should be checked out. Get to a doctor, ok?
