Customer Question

I am 63 years old, female, have a pacemaker, overweight, but usually feel in good health. Yesterday half my face was quite swollen, made an appointment with the dentist, who I'll see tomorrow. I don't have a toothache. When I awoke this morning, both sides of my face are swollen and I have 2 black eyes. This afternoon, after working all day, I have a headache. What's going on?
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eye itchy? I'm good. And you?
Customer: Yesterday my face started to swell at work in the morning. No, my eyes don't itch.
JA: Glad to hear it. Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

I am sorry you are having these issues.

swelling of the face can be from allergies or an infection, like a viral infection.

can you upload a clear jpg photo of your face which shows the swelling?

do you see the "add file" link?

Why a referral to an "eye" doctor? Please refund my money as I have received NO answer. I'll be seeing a doctor today. Thank you.

I am not an eye doctor.
