Hey guys, I just have a quick question. For the past 3 or so weeks I have noticed I have a swollen submental lymph node.
Thats the one about 2 inches down from you jaw point. Its like a little pea or pebble. At any rate, I have noticed that every time i do my deadlift or antoher heavy lift, I really clench my teeth together and then I will have a very stiff jaw, and the next morning my jaw will ake a bit.
So is there any way the swollen lymph node is caused by this? Anyone else have experience with this problem? thanks guys
Yes. In my case, I was clenching my teeth so hard that they eventualy split.
The swelling in the lymph nodes was because of an infection in the broken teeth.
A bite piece helps, but you should go to a dentist to get them checked, filled, fitted for a mouthpiece, and antibiotics if necessary.
Best. Post. It may very well be an infected tooth. This could lead to very severe problems if the swelling crosses over to the other side possibly leading to obstruction of the airway. Go see a dentist. They can refer as needed.
