Hello good people!
Hope everyone is as ok as possible I've had some problems with my jaw recently, causing loads of pressure in my temples, eyes and head generally. Some swelling too. Saw my nurse and she upped meds for a bit, this helped, also saw a max fax specialist who did an X-ray and found some wear and tear on my jaw and thinks the swelling and pressure is a result of the RA. My upped meds went back down last week and yesterday the pressure in my head returned big time and my eyes swelled up so I looked like I'd been punched!! Had some swelling in my cheeks too. Phoned my RA consultant today who isn't upping my meds again or doing anything until the max fax consultant has done an MRI (booked for the end of the month). so I feel a bit stuck! And a bit down to be honest. Has anyone else experienced this kind of facial swelling because of jaw problems or could it be something else?! Thanks in advance lovely people xx
