I have started getting facial swelling (adema) that lasts for days after running, drinking alcohol or coffee. What is causing this, my adrenals?
Worthy to check it: Swelling due to fluid accumulation in a tissue, or edema, could be caused by problems with the adrenal glands. These conditions are relatively rare, however, compared to other causes related to the kidney, liver, lymphatics or blood vessels. I would suggest seeing your physician for an examination and blood work for starters. Further investigation with radiologic studies may also be warranted. ...Read more

Often overlooked other causes (ie wisdom teeh) require an exam. ...Read more

I have symptoms of sinusitis with mild facial swelling. A year ago, I had a root canal on the same side on the upper molar number two with a crown placed. That tooth is tender now. What could be the cause of swelling, tooth or sinus? I am not sure whom to
Dentist First: From you history, I would start with the root canal tooth, then work from there. It is possible, given your timeline, that the root canal possibly failed, and the infection recurred. If so, treatment is necessary and may allow you to still save the tooth. It is possible it's a sinus infection, but my first guess would be the rct tooth. You want a "pa x-ray", digital if possible, or ct scan. ...Read more
