Stress : Won't do any good to the body. Working hard and lack of sleep can affect health adversely. There's a possibilty you may be grinding your teeth. Do you still have your wisdom tooth? The parotid gland is also in the same location. See you dentist so you can have a definitive diagnosis. Goodluck :)!
