Salivary Gland stone: You may have either an infection of the salivary gland on the right side (submandibular gland) or may be a stone blocking the duct of the gland. It probably swells when you eat and then goes down as the saliva passes the obstruction. See an ENT physician to check your salivary glands.

Swear off, OK?: Even if you did a large amount, it would be out of your system by now. In fact, effects are not expected at all after ~5 hrs. Here's info: http://drug. Addictionblog. Org/how-long-does-cocaine-stay-in-your-system/ If you had enough to be toxic - you might have died, so you were lucky this time. Don't press your luck. Steer clear of it. Also it can be 'laced' w/ poisons. It's a bad thing! Best wishes
Remove tongue bar: How long ago was your tongue pierced? If you remove the tongue bar, your increased salivary flow might reduce.
Check it out first..: I would highly recommend that you have it examined. You want to rule out stones, infection, cysts, and other salivary diseases. Proper diagnosis and prompt early treatment is imperative to good care and recovery.See 1 more doctor answer
Not usually.: Over eating combined with a very poor oral hygiene, infected gums, or oral infections, throat infections, ear infections, which can be passed on through salivary ducts to salivary glands can lead to salivary gland infections, & hence the swelling. The other reason can be salivary stones, if the block the ducts. At meal time, when salivary glands produce saliva, the glands swell up.See 1 more doctor answer

Could be: One of he symptoms with celiac disease is "dry mouth" due to the changes that occur in the composition of the saliva in the gland (see http://www. Medicinaoral. Org/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/medoralv13i9p559-doenca-celiaca. Pdf) this could lead to mucus plugs which could cause the glands to swell. Remember celiac is a disease of the digestive system and any part of that system could be affected.See 1 more doctor answer
connective tissue: Connective tissue disease: test for sjogren's (blood & sialogram) & autoimmune thyroid, explore with your doctor : there does not need to be one primary autoimmune disorder.
Celiac disease: This is an understudied area. Celiac disease has an autoimmune background and increased risk of oral mucosal and dental abnormalities. One study showed that celiacs have a higher chance of developing canker sores. This can cause swollen salivary glands. One other study showed lower chances of salivary cariogenic microflora in celiacs. So this is controversial. Don't forget to rule out sjogren's.
Wharton's Duct: On either side of the lingual frenum, the skin that looks like a vertical wall under your tongue.
