just can't win...

March 28th, 2010 (07:56 pm)

current mood: annoyed

I have something painful happening in the inside left cheek of my mouth which is making my lips numb and the left side of my face slightly swelled. My lips feel like they're waking up from the dentist. Originally I thought I was grinding my teeth but it doesn't look like that - like mouth ulcers and a rash. I've been wearing my bite guard since Friday evening and every time I think I'm getting a little better, I start hurting again.

Naturally, one of the very RARE allergic reactions to Cymbalta has to do with swelling on the face, tongue and/or throat.

I have a call in to the neuro assistant so hopefully I will hear from them Monday and maybe get worked in or advised or something to help me with this. It hurts and burns so I've been using salt inside my mouth, which stings initially but then makes it feel better for a little while.

I am so UTTERLY frustrated by all this...

My goodness Onna I am soooo sorry to hear this. Hang in there girl, you're in our thoughts and prayers. I hope nothing serious comes out of this side effect. :'CCCCC

Hug - Eiri and Shuichi

It looks better now - it's from stress, not an allergic reaction. So your prayers and thoughts helped. Thank you!
