I have difficulty chewing food on the left side of

I have difficulty chewing food on the left side of my mouth. I have full motion of my tongue toward the right side, but have difficulty moving it on the left side. If almost feels as though I am coming out of a Novocaine shot after a visit to the dentist. This started 2 days ago. Also, when I stick out my tongue, the tip points partly to the left side of my face.

Hi, I recently fell off a longboard and hit my head, around the upper left hand corner of my forhead, and now (two days later) its still hurts to chew using the left side of my jaw. What could be going on here? Will it go away? Should I make a doctor s/dentist s appointment?

I am A 77 old female, in pretty good health. I have been experiencing pain in the left side of my jaw area for about a month or so. A number of years I did the same. It occurs while a eat and chew. I was told it is the gland that causes mumps and I should just eat something sour. Should I see my internet for this or wait for my annual check up in April? Thank you.
