About a month ago , along with the diffuse sclero , raynauds , psoriasis , etc.
We discovered that I have type 2 diabetes. ok, diet change and another pill.
( I'm really under weight so this came as a complete surprise )
any way, over the past few days I have awoke to this somewhat painful facial swelling. My eyes almost shut. It improves some as the day passes but doesn't complete go away.

Sclero or diabetes ? I can't find any thing about this.

Hi Katherine,
I'm sorry to hear about your facial swelling, it must be very uncomfortable for you. I'm just wondering whether it is an allergic reaction you are having, are you on any new meds?.

If it was me I would probably go and see your general practitioner or speak to a pharmacist about it especially if you are taking any new meds, hopefully they will be able to help you.

I'm sorry I can't help you any further, maybe someone else will chime in soon with better suggestions.

Take care

No new med. In less it's the diabetic med , but I've been on it for a month now. You're right though I need to just go in to see my doctor
Just tired of seeing his face . :) LOL

Thanks , Katherine
