Back in the wars despite being smoke free. Felt awful last week thought it was an ear infection - pain in head swollen face and questioned if it was anything to do with smoking cessation. Went off to docs. - diagnosed with Bells Palsy now up to my eyeballs with meds. but must press on with quit. Just want other members to be aware that not all symptoms are cessation related and if anyone in any doubt do visit the doctors as I was told it was my quick reaction to symptoms that stopped my problem from being worse. Have decided to stay on 14mg patches till I am feeling better GP says this is OK. So peeps if in doubt - CHECK IT OUT. Glad to see most seem to be doing well. Enjoy your BH weekend Good Luck to all.
