Swelling and pain

Since a long time now, the right side of my face swells sometimes and also it pains in the lower jaw.
Also after chewing hard stuff my face swells up and tension builds. It goes away after a while.
And sometimes my peripheral right side feels kind of dull and lifeless.
My quality of life has decreased a lot
