Severe mouth pain, inflamed gums, swollen glands, neck soreness, recurring shortness of breath. What do these signs mean?

hi! I have severe pain in my mouth but only on the right side and the very back part of my gum seems to be extremely inflamed. Also I have a a swollen gland on the right side of my face along with neck soreness and stiffness . Along with this I cannot open my mouth wide enough to eat properly, I think it may be lockjaw but I m not sure. Another random symptom I have is a liquidy red eye , but again only on the right side of my face. I m also experiencing shortness of breath and an on and off sore throat . I don t know what all these symptoms could mean, could you give me some possibilities please? Much appreciated thanks.

thanks for your query,
the features what you are giving looks like infection of the gums surrounding the last molar tooth causing pus formation (cellulitis) the infection might be spreading to involve the tissue spaces it might cause difficulty in swallowing and respiration and limited mouth opening...immediately consult a dental surgeon, you have to take a course of antibiotics and if required incision and drainage of the need to undergo radiographic examination and blood investigations..
thanking you...
wish you speedy recovery...
