Ive noticed this many times in the past but was reminded of how serious it was again today.

Ive had water in my ears for a few days and today Ive been trying to get it out, so I put my head sideways and lower than the rest of my body toward the ground. Almost immediately my face was swollen (with blood) and very uncomfortable. The area around my eyes became swollen and my eyes themselves were very blood shot. It seems like way too much blood rushed to my face when its lower than the rest of my body. It actually felt kind of stingy and painful almost. Ive never seen this happen to anybody before.

Ive made several other threads on here so you can look at those for the rest of my many other symptoms, but this was a very disturbing symptom to me. What could this be?

  • Just having all the blood in my face made it very uncomfortable and kind of stung. My whole face felt slightly itchy, but no discharge. The eye that was closer to the ground was more blood shot, but both of my ears had water in them so I put both sides down separately. My head looked lopsided for whichever side of my head that was down at the moment. I couldnt open my eyes that wide because my whole face was swollen with blood. After I got back rightside up symptoms lasted for another 15 minutes or so. It felt like my heart was beating weirdly and my blood wasnt flowing right. I have not smoked any pot for nearly a month now, so no.I also want to add I felt weird during and after the episode. I was kind of confused and I didnt feel right. Not lightheaded, but different than that.
