Does anyone else have facial swelling?

My face swells up really bad when I get a Migraine. Does this happen to anyone else? Thank you. 😀

  1. Hey there. Yes I have some swelling, not alot tho but especially around my eyes.

    1. Yes, facial swelling can be part of your Migraines. However, it can also be a side effect of several Migraine medications like depakote and even advil. Next time you go to your doctor, ask him/ her about it to make sure it's not an allergic reactioin to a drug you're taking.

      You can go to Drugs.com and enter each drug you are taking and see if facial swelling is listed under the side effects.
