Jaw problem

Hi Doc

yesterday I started getting a strange sore feeling under my chin, it feels as if its not coming from the throat, but in the soft area under the chin, it is internal rather than external. This area is also swollen now. My jaw also feels stiff and a bit unco-ordinated. What could this be?

Many thanks

Dear Sue
Could be the salivary gland under your tongue that is infected or the duct could be blocked by a small stone. You may need antibiotics - best to let your doctor examine the area.
