Does anyone else seem to check and recheck for swollen things, lymph nodes, mouth, throat, eyes, etc...it is the most irritating of the habits I have related to this problem. It's just mind boggling to the logical me how i can stare at myself and look so hard for a sign of a disease or ailment. It's so tiring yet I can't seem to get over the fact that 10 minutes ago everything looked normal. Right now my upper eyelid has been feeling puffy and swollen but it isn't...I know it isn't...all those i have asked state it isn't yet, the feeling persists and i feel it necessary to check atleast once an hour. Drives me bonkers I swear! And the thought for me thinking what is causing this...a tooth abscess that has manifested itself and is slowly progressing to my brain. Eventhough I went to the dentist Monday I mean it's just unreal to imagine that could happen with no pain...no swelling. Deep down I know it's from squinting my eyes and straining but no matter what "logical" me KNOWS it can't override the manifestation of my mind. So tiring I tell ya! And tiring for those around me being constantly asked "is it swollen?" One day I will get over this. Sorry just had to vent. But I do want to know if others check and re-check. Thanks!
