My gums in the back bottom right side of my mouth is swollen and hurting I have already had my wisdom teeth removed I believe two years ago. And this swelling and pain has been going on for the past two days now. I am not sure what this is so please provide me with any advice.

It could be due to lack of vitamin C, bad diet or gingivitis. You need to visit a periodontist and get it checked. If it is gingivitis, then you will need proper treatment followed by good oral care to ensure that you do not face the problem again.
