Hello,. I’m May, 28 years old. R n Initially I felt sore on the left side of my tongue when my mouth was open or closed, for several days. R nThen the next day it developed into a sore jaw. I ignored this because I thought it was only temporary. R nThe next day there was a swelling, but not too big, under the hinge of my left jaw (I thought it was just internal heat). R nWithout realizing how long it had been, my left temple often hurts, and radiates to the head (like a migraine) and to the shoulders. r nIf I press my shoulder, it will hurt my head. r nToday I feel something strange about my face. r nEvery time I smile, my left cheek muscles are not aligned with the right (the left side is lower than the right), as well as when I squint my eyes, the right eye is closed, but the left is still slightly open. r nI can still do activities as usual. . r nIs it dangerous for me?
