I woke up this moring and my lower jaw and insides of my cheeks hurt. It hurt to chew my food and food and drinks made the insides of my cheeks burn and sting. I took a nap this afternoon and the symptoms were much worse and my lower left jaw was even swollen. I thought maybe I was grinding my teeth or clamping my jaw shut real hard while I sleep, but that doesn't explain why the insides of my cheeks hurt too. Has anyone else had something similar happen? I would appreciate any ideas and what I can do to help the situation.
Thank you very much!
