Begining yesterday morning I have been expeiancing a lot of pain and swelling in my lower jaw all the way in the back of my mouth. The pain and swelling have seemed to be getting worse. I have pain everytime I swallow food or drinks, talk, open my mouth, and when there is a lot of movement on the furniture I am on. I need to know what may be wrong, and what I can do to ease the pain and reduce the swelling. Since I do not have dental insurance I cannot afford to go into the office for an evaluation. Thank you for your time.
