I had a pneumo jab last week and my face has been swollen on one side ever since?

Is it just a reaction to the inoculation, and will it go down soon, or should I be worried? It is difficult to see the doctor when they are so busy and I don't want to be making a fuss over nothing?

    The fact that there has been swelling for a week, is a big deal...I would just start by giving the doctor a call and seeing if they can't give you advice over the phone...perhaps they may need you to come in..but hey your health is worth the time.

    This does not sound normal at all. Call your doctor's office and ask to speak with the triage nurse. The triage nurse will be able to relay a message to your doctor quickly and get an answer back to you.

    I hope this isn't anything major!!

    Have a safe and happy holiday!
