I have seen several ETN's - I do not have a salivary stone. I have been to several TMJ specilaist & Oral surgeons, but they do not know why I swell. Even my primary doctor told me he does not know. I do not want surgery. I am at a lost. I take Alleve everyday. After I eat, the swelling starts. Even if I think of food, I feel the swelling start. What could it be? When I know what I have I can address it correctly.
