neck swells when chewing

Posted by msbhavin

My neck swells when chewing. This happened the first time over 15 yrs ago. Sometimes it happens on just one side or the other, sometimes both sides will swell. I had had angioplasty around the same time the swelling started. I went quite awhile w/no swelling and then it started back up and no one seemed to know what caused it and down played it. I had a massive (MI) heart attack almost 6 yrs ago and while in hospital for that, I had the swelling and called in a nurse to show her. Her response was it had nothing to do with my heart and nothing was ever checked. I sleep on my side and now I am waking up with pain in my neck and terrible headaches. (swelling lasts under an hour and then goes away)
