We understand your concerns

From the limited descriptions you gave, the symptoms are not enlightening. Even psychological anxiety can make you feel that your cheeks and mouth are collapsing.

You have to ensure that you don't have any wasting disease such as anemia. Rule out hormonal deficiencies and if you are habitual to any substances such as liquor, tobacco etc you have to investigate such problems. Excessive masturbation can cause anxiety and may lead to such problems
