Re: submandibular gland removal
I have had severe pain in my jaw for about three months. It does not hurt when I wake up, but gets worse as the day goes on. There is a painful swelling under my right jaw - right under the corner of the jawbone. It gets much worse when I eat - brings tears to my eyes. (Great for dieting though!)I was originally diagnosed with a swollen lymph node.
Also, I have had general symptoms of infection - night sweats, low-grade fevers and feeling lousy in general.
