Need thorough exam: Hard to say what is going on without a thorough exam and x-rays. You may even need a MRI. I would see an oral surgeon first and then get more information and/or tests as required.

For a while?: Please call your Physician. May need to see ENT. As you now understand, "waiting' is not the appropriate treatment.
