gertie Posted January 22, 2010 Report Share Posted January 22, 2010 Does anyone have any problems with parotid glands? If I eat even a tiny amount of anything that is acidic such as OJ, lemon, tomato etc, I immediately get slight swelling in my glands but only on one side & it is very uncomfortable. This has been going on for months. I've eliminated foods with salicylates & that doesn't leave much to eat. I can't understand if it is an allergy why both sides wouldn't be effected. I've been to my PCP & ENT more than once & they don't know what it is. Could it be a nerve damage or something caused from Dys? I'm tired of everything I eat causing my face to swell. I've probably asked this before but I'm hoping someone will eventually have an answer. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
