back down to earth with a bump!

AH well! back to normal. Spent all night in pain, took extra pain meds which as we know do't really help gave up trying to sleep and when i looked in the mirror my face is swollen again! i look like i'm growing a second pair of cheeks and a spare chin! my eyes are swollen, the mouth area is swollen too making me have a permanant down-turned-mouth : (

After such good news yesterday too.

Thank you so much I have just ordered some



oh dear poppy hope it goes away soon its such a shame we have to look forward to a few days of agony each time we get the energy to actually do something nice...... petal


Hi poppy,have you started any new drugs,as if you have, a reaction to them will cause your face to swell.

Otherwise I don`t think this is a fibro problem,maybe see your g.p to be on the safe side
