This pain is usually comes on when the first bite of food hits your tongue and only lasts a couple of seconds. Sometimes it happens when you smell a certain food or even when you do nothing more than think about it.
This is what that is . . . when you eat something sour your mouth waters. That is, saliva is being pumped into your mouth by the salivary glands. The parotids, two of your primary salivary glands, are located on your cheeks, near the jaw. The pain is caused by the inability of the glands to discharge the saliva they are producing quickly enough.
Normally, this is a natural reaction to the foods you are eating. However, it can also be caused by parotitis, which is a low level inflammation of the gland which most often requires no treatment.
