what does it mean when your left side of your face is swollen?

Many things

Head-face
Without more information it's hard to know exactly what it means. The side of the face could mean a dental infection, an infection of the saliva gland, a skin infection, a benign growth as well as many other possibilities. If you are concerned about it then I would recommend seeing your primary care doctor or an ENT doctor for a complete evaluation.

My neck hurts on left side when I turn my head I get a pain in left side of head and ear sometime. What might make this happen?

Cervicogenic otalgia

Head
This may be caused by a pulled or sprain muscle that attached to your neck to the outlying bones of the ear. Referred pain from an irritated or pinched nerve can also cause this. Other conditions are possible. You should see your doctor for an exam to make sure its nothing more serious and to get the correct diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Nathaniel Chan answered:

Sometimes i can not open my jaw because i feel hurt when open it (at my bone at the left side of my cheek). Why does that happen?

Possibly TMJ

Muscle
Difficulty opening can be due to muscle tension, a dislocated articular disc, or even an infection. If this is a frequent occurrence, see your dentist to help make a determination.

Why sometimes my left side of my head hurts by my temple ? I have slight sharp pains . It doesn't feel like a headache. It would happen then go away

Neuralgia

Pain
Neuralgia is a condition causing sharp, shooting pains coming from nerves in the scalp area and not from brain pathology. They are more of a nuisance disorder than anything serious. If symptoms worsen have your MD check you and order any pertinent tests however.

When running for 20+ minutes my leg hurts on the left side where the tendons are, doesnt happen when I exercise generally though, only when running?

Could be a few thing

Leg
This could be a variety of issues - but if it continues unresolved for more than 2 weeks - a visit is in order to assure continued activity does not advance the possible injury. It could simply require some physical therapy - as a runner myself - it is important to have it checked out. Running is a great activity and does require a few "tune-ups" from docs time to time. It's a GOOD problem.

Possible gas

The symptoms you describe are consistent with gas. If it becomes painful, may try simethicone.

Dr. Glenn Burnett answered:

When I woke up the left outside side of my ribcage area hurt to take in a deep breath. Why may that have happened. Now I feel like I can't take in a deep breath even though it don't hurt anymore?

Rib Pain

Blood
There are many things that can cause this type of pain. The most concerning is that you may have had a pulmonary embolus. This type of pain in the chest is called PLEURITIC - and can also happen with infections, chest injury, and the accumulation of fluid in the chest. As I stated above, it can occur with blood clots in the lung - and since that is life-threatening you should see and MD today.
