Thanks Irish, those are interesting questions.
I'm certain the composition of my saliva has changed with SJS.
Local change in temerature doesn't seem to change the occurrence.
I have been to top specialists in my area and they can't figure out what is causing the swelling.
The immediate swelling the occurs when I eat must be the glands since it also drains quickly.
The general swelling I get from dryness might be the tissues since it's more stubborn in going away.
I was almost certain there were mucus plugs in my accessory glands preventing the glands from draining properly, thus causing temporay swelling when I get a rush of saliva upon eating, but the
MRI didn't pick up on anything.
