sternocleidomastoid muscle enlarged on right side of neck

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.

Yes indeed

When you have inflammation your entire head feels the pain

Our head is connected to just about everything on the upper body

Ears nose throat neck lymph nodes all connected

When u get to the doc he will let u know what's going on

Get that wisdom tooth removed and you will feel 100% better

Tru not to worry

Drink some wine and relax and get some sleep

Yes it could be if its infected. If could be an ear infection swollen lymph nodes mean there is an infection close by.
