My face is swollen. Last night I got up and I was massaging my cheek bone area and other areas of my face. I try to do this once in awhile, well anyhow, I fell back to sleep and I woke up to a swollen face on the left side. I am hoping it a pimple trying to come up. I really hate them but it's better than having something else.

Hi Sam,

Is it the entire left side of your face that is swollen? Any redness or soreness? Toothache or earache? Sinus headache? Really terrible dry mouth and swollen glands? There are loads of things it could be~ You might want to have a quick visit with your doctor if it persists.

Sam, my firsst thought was a dental problem. Do you think it's a tooth?

Hi Sam,

My partner on his right side of face is swollen from his jaw to his temple with tremendous pain, and very red round the swollen area. This is the first time he has experienced this and its getting worse, it has come from no where. If you find a solution please let me know.

Hi Sam ~ I realize this is a little late, it appears that your post was in May. I would love to know what outcome you had; did you go to the doctors? How were you diagnosed? I'm experiencing somewhat of the same problem. Although, my swelling is getting worse, even after starting a antibiotic.
Would love to here more about your outcome.
