I'm 55 yrs old female, and my question is with the new sudden face swelling producing a large, painless lump over my jawline, is this a emergency situation E.R., or can I wait to see my doctor tomorrow.
My thyroid was not producing because it didn't,t respond to the signals to do so. My test score was 100 so it had not been making any hormone at all. I have had trouble taking my medicine exactly as prescribed and have twice totally stopped taking due to memory problems. The second episode has been for the last 3 to 4 weeks with a few sporadic uses.
I've been having dizzy spells with almost falling down, and today my left side of face on jawline got swollen suddenly and under my eye also. This is the second time this has happened in the last 3 to 4 weeks that I noticed. There is no pain associated with the swelling. Besides the memory problems getting wore and the vertigo a new symptom and little things having me burst into tears and just about every hypothyroid symptom going back to childhood and undiagnosed till a few years ago.
Posted a picture, not sure if it's good enough to tell, but it's the swollen lump on my jaw next to my mouth. Making my jawline protrude below my chin.
Any help is appreciated.
