Brief Answer:
Can be T-M joint inflammation.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The swelling that you have can be due to T-M joint inflammation. Rest and hot compress with mild pain killers can help. This needs a direct examination and few investigations to confirm the diagnosis.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
