The swelling is on the right side of my face along the jaw line. And it came up in a minute or too with a tingling sensation and pain when I moved my jaw to speak / drink

I think there is an element of allergy to known substance that has caused the swelling of left side fo face. I would advise you take Cetrizine hydrochloride 1 tablet a day for 3 days. It will settle in meantime. If you have difficulty in eating or breathing, i would advise you to go call 111
