Can relate. I just had an incident with a bitten cheek which swelled and was shooting pain through half my jaw. "It will heal on its own". Yes, so would a broken bone. "You can close your mouth". Well, technically you can step on a broken leg too if you raise the pain threshold high enough. And I *can't* close my mouth completely and unlike you I can feel it, so let me be the judge of that. "You should go to the dentist, normally-shaped jaws don't bite cheeks". Normal legs don't break easily either, so instead of putting on a cast let's go do some tests for osteoporosis.
