Salivary stone : Could be a complete or partially blocked gland from a calcification or mucous plug. See your dentist for an evaluation of your salivary flow.

Poss. blocked duct: A blockage in a salivary gland or duct leading from the gland can give you a funny feeling in the gland and you may notice a swelling of your gland and face if the blockage becomes severe. The swelling or feeling may come and go depending upon what you eat and type of blockage you may have. Other things may also make your glands feel funny so go see your dentist for an exam and diagnosis.
