hi i have been on prednisone for over 20 days and was on verapamil for 7 but stopped this weekend. my face is tingly and numb, it is VERY hard to swallow and my neck is swollen and tingly as well. this has been doing on for over a week. wondering if this has to do with the meds. my nuro wants me to go for an mri of the neck soon. i am scared my throats going to close! i am stopping the prednisone tomorrow have been tapering slowly. thanks for listening.

  • hi there. I am havng the same problems with my face going numb and such. I've had hives for 6 mo. now and yesterday and today i've had them just ON my face. today it's just the left side of my face/eye swollen and yesterday it was just my lips. I am seeing an allergist right now, but there is no relief so far. i have autoimmune disease and am struggling with it. have you seen any doc?
