My wisdom tooth is growing. The gum hurts a little. Under my jaw I can feel a node being a little swolen and it hurts a little. Is this normal?

In brief: Not normal

Pain and swelling may not be uncommon, but it's not normal.
To make sure your symptoms are not an indication of a more severe problem, see a wisdom tooth specialist, an Oral Surgeon. Seek consultation before your nagging chronic problem becomes a severe acute problem, in the middle of the night, or over a long weekend, or when the Specialist is on vacation.
