Dear All,

I have a slight swelling on my cheek which I could not figure out why is there.

Some symptoms which I know are that I had bleeding gums but last year I had a good treatment and thats really recovered now except sometimes i have little bleeding but thats mainly if i become little careless....

It becomes more severe when I sleep on my right hand side for a long time during my night sleep so i have to becare that I dont sleep on right side. sometimes it slightly aches as well. I also feel my right ear a little filled that my left one and i feel it more as it swells more.

apart from these symptoms I am alright no.... stomach, heart, or any kind of other problems as well as no injuries etc...

any experiences.... any suggestions... I m planning to have an appointment with ENMT or a Dentist but you know its not an easy task unfortunately....

  • I think I have the same thing. My right cheek is swollen from the top of the jaw down. It is most sensitive where my jaw connects to my skull. I am thinking it might be muscular - something to do with the muscle used to chew, talk, open and close, etc. If I open my mouth wide, that muscle is clearly more prominent than that on the left side.Linfusun
