Have you heard of this?
Have you experienced it ?

starts off with a runny nose, and what seems to be sinus.
ends up --- possibly fatal.

the pain was excruciating that whole night, from a tooth ache from hell. all the way from the Jaw up into my eye.
waking up - I looked like a hamster about to hibernate - or did I put my pillow in my cheek.
I was double the man.

a trip to medicross, had me on a drip, and then a course of antibiotics -- im not half the man I used to be now.

My Point.
It is a bacteria that gets beneath the skin and goes from worse to worse - forming eventually around the heart to suffocate it.
all started, from a small scratch, pimple or prick -- who knows.

don't underestimate - the symptom, cold, sinus, tooth ache, and of course swollen face, leg or arms.
I typically tend to ignore aches and pains - colds etc. but this one is not to be ignored.
