On the right side under my tongue the saliva gland has been enlarged for the past couple of years. Doc says it's probably glogged. Sometimes it can get painful and the pain goes clear to my ear. I haven't seen an ENT for it to see what can be done for it.
Thanks, just wondering if anyone else had this.

Hi Marlee. For my bad mouth problems I see an oral pathologist. They are dentists with PhDs in mouth diseases. It really sounds like u should see one. If none in ur area, see ur ENT. I hope u are able to see a doc soon. Love, Butterflake

Hi Marlee,

I would definitely get it checked out, make sure its not a stone. Haven't had one but have heard that they can get very painful. Let us know what your doc says.
