I have been to several doctors in the pass six weeks. I have severe swelling under my jaw bone down to my neck. Sometime my lips swell also . Right now for the first time my left thumb is swollen also. There is not much pain. There have been knots below the corner of my mouth and knots on my neck. The swelling mostly happens at night. When my neck is swollen badly my left ear feels like it is stopped up. The swelling have not gone all the way down since this started. I have been to an oral surgeon, she did x-rays and there were no signs of abseces or root damaged. She also requested a CT scan, and referred me to an ENT doctor. The CT scan did not show anything but swollen tissue. I have been on two antibiotics and the symptoms have never completely went away. There is some itching around the swollen area sometimes. I have not been on any new medications or eaten anything out of the norm. The only new thing that I have encountered is a new pet (dog). I do have severe allergies but my allergy doctor did not think that the swelling was caused by allergies, although the ENT doctor did mention that this may be associated with allergies. Blood work was taken and all result were negative.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
