I am a 38 year old female with a one week symptom of tingling sensation in the right jaw. Previously I had hyper sensation when I ate hot sauce on my right side salivary gland for two months which is gone now. Now, I have the tingling sensation that comes and go by my lymph node under my right jaw. I am otherwise healthy and runs 25 miles a week. Any advice?
Hello, A detailed clinical as well as radiological evaluation of the affected areas of jaws is necessary. TMJ dislocation or fracture of jaws can lead into such condition. Meanwhile,avoid mouth opening too widely. Jaws has to be immobilised for a while. Take analgesics along with muscle relaxants. Please do visit an oral-maxillofacial surgeon for further concern. Take care.
