The bridge of my nose has been a little tender to the touch for the past 48 hours or so. For the past week or two I’ve had this red spot under my right eye, like I had rubbed my eye too much or something. I figured I had some sort of sinus infection going on, so I’ve been taking appropriate action by blowing my nose, doubling up on the orange juice, drinking echinacea tea, etc. This morning, it’s slightly swollen and has jumped up on the pain scale to “throbbing”. It doesn’t hurt a lot, but I can’t ignore it as easily.
I’m not concerned about the pain, as I can endure just about anything short of the severing of a limb. However, I am concerned about the swelling. Vanity wins. I’m calling the doctor.
