On two separate occasions I have now had during the night a facial swelling appear only to disappear within 8 hours. The swelling has centred around my mouth although I have no ulcer or abcess. I start to feel as if I have just had an injection at the dentist but without the numbness - I can still feel everything. I am unable to smile properly when it happens and my face drops slightly. The first time it occurred I was asked to go to A&E where I underwent a MRI which was normal and several blood tests. Nothing was found and the doctors did not believe I had suffered a stroke of any kind. This however occurred again last night at 1.15 in the morning (the previous episode happened between 5am and 7.30am) and I felt it happening. I did not attend hospital and by the morning it was clearing. Do you have any idea what this could be - a doctor mentioned palsy?
