Dear Chris
There is a condition called chorda tympani syndrome or Frey sindrome. The chorda tympani is one of the nerves running in the face and injury or inflammation or irritation of the nerve can cause these symptoms. I really think you should ask your GP to refer you to a specialist to exclude tumours etc.
