| | Can a saliva gland blow up?
I was recently diagnosed with mixed connective tissue disease, it seems tho that everything is going wrong. tonight when I ate tomato soup, something on the side of my face balled up. It started out with a saliva gland type cramp, them poof, this big lumpy thing was there. I can't figure out why it did that! The swelling went down about half hour later, there is minimal swelling now. Ice? heat? leave it alone?? worry??
