My face is somewhat swollen, I don't know if it is sinuses…

Customer Question
My face is somewhat...

My face is somewhat swollen, I don't know if it is sinuses or a tooth. I don't currently have a toothache. It's tender to the touch. It's just to the right and down a little of the right side of my nose.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this issue? Any other skin concerns?

No other skin issues. I really noticed it the most yesterday

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I'm on a lot of medications for depression, blood pressure and anxiety...but I've been on them a long time.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
