hi was wondering if anyone else may think this is a relevent sympton to mention at next appt with rheumy- i have been having a bruised feeling across the bridge of my nose, nothing to see just feels as if i have been hit. i also have two small white lumps on inside of lower eye lid on the outside corner(its not a stye). Ihave not got a cold or had one and this has been going on a couple of days.
Last week i also had a sensation as if i had a lump in the centre of my throat- anyone else had either of these strange things happen to them???

I get the throat thing quite often, but I don't know if its relevant. Just put it all in a list and take it to next appt. Let the Rhumy work out what is and ins't significant. That's what I'm doing anyway.

Good luck!

Hiya :)

I dont have the sensitive nose problems but I can empathise with the 'lump in the throat feeling'. I have occasional times when I have this sensation of a lump in my throat and tonight it was particularly bad because I was in a lot of pain and couldnt swallow my painkillers. I almost went into a 'spin' because of it. For no apparaent reason I suddenly could not swallow my tablets and I had no forewarning as to why they would not go beyond this 'lump' in my throat. I ended up 'snapping' my tablets in three bits (thank god they weren't capsules!) and swallowing them bit by bit. I find it hard to understand why they could not get past this 'lump' which had suddenly appeared. It doesnt cause me any problems when eating normally - just swallowing anything out of the ordinary. My latest labs say that my ESR is high so I wonder if I have a bit of inflammation in my throat. I wonder if you do too? My plan at the moment is to wait and see if a current symptom goes beyond about two weeks and if it does then I try and address it by targeting the symptom directly through my doctor. Sorry if this doesnt help - its the only thing I can offer at the moment.

As regards your eye, get this checked out as soon as you can. It could be a cyst. I had this about 10 years ago and I had to have it lanced. It came back about one year later and I had the same procedure and never had it repeated so I cant tell you the underlying cause. However, removing the cyst did resolve the problem. Its not the most pleasant of procedures (though not painful) but Im glad I went and sorted it out. I have no idea if it was related to my Lupus as I was far from diagnosed at the time. I looked like Blackbeard the Pirate (with my big white patch) for a while but it worked out alright.

Wish I could make you better....
Love

I have never had the feeling of my nose being sore or bruised and I have had numerous surgeries on my sinus cavity yet never had anything like what your describing.

I do get the lump in the throat thing a lot as if something is lodged in my throat and yet nothing is there. It is not painful but certainly annoying.

I also have had polyps or cystic spots cut open and drained from the inside of my eyelids. I would suggest you call your eye doctor about these. Once the drain they typically do not come back, at least not in the same spot.:rolleyes:

I used to get them more often when I worked but now thankfully I do not get them much at all. I hope you get this all sorted out.:wink2:

Hi,

I'm sorry you have these new things to contend with :hugbetter: I second the idea of getting them all checked out and maybe you will need some further investigations.

The 'lump' in the throat sounds familiar to me, I have trouble swallowing a lot and it seems to 'get stuck' half way down :( My doc has organised an endoscopy to check it out, I won't be surprised if they don't find anything but at least we will know it's nothing serious. If they do find something then I am sure they have something up their sleeve to treat it.

Take care, hugs,

Lily
