I have seen an Maxofacial Surgeon and an ENT for my left parotid pain and swelling. So far, he has ordered a CT scan which was negative other then some tiny reactive posterior cervical chain and jugulodigastic lymph nodes. He says that I may be attacking my own gland. Had anyone ever heard of this and if so what was your outcome? Its driving me crazy with the hypersecreation and pain. :confused:
