What could be cause of recurring swelling on both the sides of the jaw ?

Hello. The past 2 mornings I have woken up with some major swelling on both sides of my jaw. It doesn t hurt, can open my mouth fine, no numbness on either side. It usually goes away in a couple hours but its still pretty scary. Any ideas why this could be? Thank You.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
This can be either due to bilateral obstruction of the parotid duct or Temporomandibular joint problem. Please do consult your ENT specialist to rule out any other condition.

Take care
