It all started with my left temple swelling in 7/15. It went to my cheek and later into my neck. During that time I went to my dentist, two walk in clinics, my primary, ENT and finally to the ER when it went into my throat. They all put me on antibiotics that didn't help. I had a prescription for prednisone that I never took and decided to try it. I figured out that it was from hair dye and I stopped dying my hair. The swelling went down and stayed away until January of 2016. It all started again while I was in Florida for the winter. Finally, it got really bad in March and I went to a walk in clinic and asked for another prescription of prednisone to hold me over until I got home. After, I got home I started the doctors appointments... My primary, rheumatologist, dentist, allergist, another rheumatologist (because the first one said I had RA and don't), neurologist, third rheumatologist and she said I have Angioneurotic edema. She orders a complete blood work up...so much that they went into both arms to draw blood. I'm still waiting for those results and in the mean time I'm back on prednisone for the next month. I started researching my condition on the Internet and found a small clip about Lipitor high ANA numbers and Angioneurotic edema or angioderma. Not one doctor suggested that there may a connection. I have fired my primary and go to see my new one next week. I have quit taking the Lipitor and will be anxious to see what he says. The swelling always starts in my left temple goes into my cheek and lower jaw I feel horribly fatigued, achy and absolutely awful. I have had an MRI on my brain, all good, ultra sound on my cheek last week and waiting for results. I'm so happy to have found others that this is happening to. I was so desperate that I called my insurance company in hopes that they could shed some light on what is wrong with me. I hope that this is the connection to my facial swelling.
Hi: I've been taking Metroprolol Tart 25 MG since 8/24/15. The only other meds I take are Armour Thyroid 60 MG and Atorvastatin 40 MG. I will be 70 in September. I have noticed within the last few months that I can basically taste salty and sweet, no other differences in the taste of what I'm eating. It feels as though my tongue is numb from the tip to about halfway up. Most of what I taste is on the back sides of my tongue. Hope this doesn't sound too strange--thought I'd share.

Good Morning. I have been having SOO much joint pain, and suddenly I questioned the only med I am on - Metoprolol, and then I found this group. I hope we can all learn from one another on how to make this more tolerable, or even work to eliminate the pain we experience.
