  • It sounds as if you have done all the right things already, however you must continue to keep an eye, you may need retesting in more detail if nothing shows up! Have you possibly been bitten by something? All I can say is watch and wait and follow your gut instincts should things get worse. MaryF

  • thanks no bites, injury or the like, swelling is continuing though hubby still sleeping, home late last night 2;30 am. attended ladies day at church last night where swelling increased.

  • Keep a very close eye. MaryF

  • Erm...see a Doctor?
