I have an impacted wisdom tooth on lower right side and a slight gum infection according to my doctor. I recently noticed my cheek is swollen and my neck. My ear hurts occasionally and last week I actually got sick and my throat hurt very bad. I also noticed a lymph node on my trapezius muscle between my ear and my shoulder. Can my wisdom tooth be causing all this? Please help I am very stressed about this. I am a hypochondriac so that doesn't help. Going to dentist tomorrow to see.
