Sorry I meant to say right in front of my ear where the jaw "hinge" is
Hi I had something similar back in the 90's way before I knew anything about HCV. It was a lump right about where your jaw opens, at first I just thought it was swollen but it continued to grow so I went to my GP.
My GP thought it was a cyst, he sent me to an ear nose throat doctor who was also a plastic surgeon.
He said it was more than a cyst and I needed to do something about it.
He did surgery to remove it.
He was the first doctor to ask if I had been tested for Hepatitis, I guess that there is a correlation as well as my liver enzymes were slightly elevated.
If you can I would look for a Ear Nose and Doctor.
Good luck, Dee
I have never experienced indentation close to my temple with swelling in the face. If this was happening to me I would go to the doctor or emergency room Swelling of your face isn't a good sign. If it were me and I wasn't getting answers and my face was swelling.... I would go to the emergency and find out exactly what is going on. This could be from treatment drugs, prescription drugs or Sjogren's Syndrome as Pooh told you.
