Swollen jaw under ear causing tingling while eating from that side. What could be the cause?

Hello, i have begun to get a swollen jaw right under my left ear. It s only on the left side and doesn t cause much pain. I have a weird sensation like tingling when i eat something on that side. My teeth don t hurt at all and yes i do have my wisdom teeth in and have had them since i was 18 years old. I am now 36. This is the first time this has occurred. I also sleep on my left side most of the time and was wondering if this could be a cause.

hello dear

you look like you are having parotid salivary gland swalling, and there multiple causes for that

you shoud know that there is systemic conditions like diabetes, caushings disease ,alcoholism, hepatic cirrosis , gout ,and myxoedema can cause painless swalling on the salivary glans

also we put in mind mumps, it is aself limiting viral infection, it can cause the same symptoms you have especially if you already took mummps vaccination, but in your mind if you had previosly infected by mummps then it is very unlikely to get second infection

finally , if your condition would not subside within 14 days then i recomand you to visit your doctor for clinical examination

hope you all the healthiness
