Salivary gland swollen for 7 months

Edited , 6 users are following.

my sub mandibular salivary gland swells every time i eat it also swells under my tongue on the same side. i have had x rays and a CT and an MRI. they all came back normal. i can only eat a little at a time because it swells to the point that it is painful. i don't weight a lot as it is, but if i can't eat much anymore, i will dwindle down to nothing . don't know what to do. anyone have the same issue?

    It does sound like stones in there. In my case i had the exact same swelling every time i ate and it is very painful. When I had an mri scan it showed a benign tumour which eventuallyi had removed. The only advice I was given before I had the scan was to get some sweets such as lemon drops. Something to make more saliva flow which may eventually make the stones move and come out. Hope this helps.
