@colleenyoung In reference to my previous post (copy-pasted below for convenience), do you think a team at Mayo Clinic will look into my case? I have documented my case extremely thoroughly and have all the medical records on hand and the doctors will surely be academically interested in my case. I live in NY but I can think about travelling to MN or we could do virtual visits.

"@plbb1 I have gone through a similar thing. Except mine is not a lump but multiple episodes of diffused right side face swelling (cheeks, under the eye, forehead, upper lip). I went to several specialists – PCP, dentist, oral surgeon, ENT, rheumatologist, immunologist/allergist, ophthalmologist, dermatologist head & neck specialist. I got MRI, CAT scan, dental panoramic x-rays, and extensive blood work and nobody could figure out what was going on. The only thing that stood out was elevated IgE which the doctors said does not result in any solid conclusions. I am not on any prescription drugs. I am not determined to be allergic to anything specific. I have done courses of Allegra, Zyrtec and Benadryl and it is not clear if they helped. I was also on a 10-day course of Augmentin (antibiotic), and that did not help. My symptoms first appeared, two weeks after the 3rd dose (booster) of the COVID-19 Moderna vaccination. After the second dose of the vaccine, I had gotten some tightness and pain on one side of the face, but I do not remember it being swollen and it resolved within a day. However, after the booster, I have had 5-6 episodes that last days to weeks. I am not sure if the vaccination caused it. If you need more details, please feel free to contact me"

@gnandanpai, if you would like to find out if you can be seen by specialists at Mayo Clinic, I suggest you contact Mayo MN to inquire and request an appointment.

Mayo Clinic welcomes both new and existing patients for virtual and in-person care, including elective surgeries, in adherence with federal and state executive orders and guidance.

Video and phone visits also can be great options for appointments before, after or in place of face-to-face care. Appointment coordinators will recommend a virtual visit if it best fits your individual needs.

Here's the contact information to find out more and next steps: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63
