Ok so for the last two weeks I have had the flu, I've been pretty much bed ridden the whole time with fatigue, acheing muscles, blocked sinuses, a cough and a sore throat.
A few days after getting sick, while eating some chicken, I bit down ******n my left cental incisor on the bottom, it hurt for a second then I forgot about it. A few days later I notced it had popped out of place and was crooked, I tried to push it back into row but it hurt so I stopped.
The next day it really hurt and I couldn't close my teeth together because of it, and my gums were slightly swollen, the next day my gums hurt too and I noticed some swelling under my Tongue. Then the next day I woke up and my gums were in so much pain, my salivary gland was really swollen and my bottom lip was huge.
That was two days ago and now everything has gotten more swollen, including my cheeks, I'm freaking out I don't know what is wrong, I'm stuck in America until tomorrow when I fly back to the UK and can see a doctor. I tried goin to the hospital here but they wanted to give me a CT scan, and that seemed a bit over the top and expensive.
Some further information: I have been in Arizona for the last three months and have travelled all round the south west. I was camping a lot, and when in AZ I lived with 15 other people and shared a kitchen.

Any help would be really appreciated.
