I have had similar pain in similar areas. Inflammation is connected to mine. When I reduce my inflammation, it helps for this to slowly reduce my symptoms. This pain and swelling happens usually 2,3 or 4 weeks after a dental cleaning or drilling.
I did research on reducing my inflammation, it isn't very difficult. It is also related to my acid and alkaline balance. So when I reduce my acid and help my body to be in it's naturally alkaline state, I feel better.
I currently am struggling with this but it's the worst episode yet. I know that I have viruses that are dormant and get activated frequently and I think this is connected to that. How do I know? Because under stress, my oral herpes turns into a sore and if I don't alkalize and reduce my inflammation, that will turn into a full blown cold.View Thread
