So I haven't thrown up in years ... last time I was 14. I threw up ONCE last night out of the clear blue and now I have little red and purple dots all over my face... in my hair line and down my neck... I went into work and got made fun of by everyone... I even got sent home early cuz how gross I look. Lol...



Anyone have this happen?
should I be worried?
Should I make an emergency appointment in the morning?
I'm not super worried about it but everyone is freaking out about it... my mom wanted me to go to the er...



Ugh... and my whole face is swollen...

i got it really bad with my last pregnancy. it was just from all the pressure of trying to throw up. its not as bad this time around but it has happened a few times. there is no need for an emergency appointment. other than mentioning the swelling. my face didnt swell when my blood vessels broke.

gahh i can;t remember.
i know they thought it was appendicitus (sp), so i had to drink that stupid nasty drink that coats your insides for a CT scan. It wasn't though, and I was mad that I had to drink that nasty stuff.




But, I think my face went back to normal in like a day or two.

i blew a number of blood vessels in my face and eyes from throwing up when i was pregnant with my kids. I had HG both times that never went away so i am very familiar with it. They would go away in a few days

NORMAL!! happens to me everytime now. It's like what your eye does only its on your face. Mine cover up just fine with makeup. The first time my face was puffy but now i just get the dots.

When my mom was pregnant with me she used to heave so hard it would break the vessels in her face.
I don't think that it's anything to worry about and it will go back to normal.

I'd rather have it happen to my face since they are so small and can be covered up with make-up, and with my eyes they always get worse before they get better and it last days longer than when it happens to my face and neck.

I have burst blood vessels in my face with this pregnancy. It has been from straining so very much in throwing up. I have no clue about the swelling so you may want to call doctor. My vessels always went away within a day or so and I was able to cover with makeup a little.

The very first time i had this happen my face was really puffy that day and a little the next. But the 2nd time it happend it wasn't as bad. What i do is keep a bottle of water in the bathroom (only when i'm getting sick) bc i can't stop puking for hours, so i'll puke and then drink water and go back to sleep.So when i get up a few mins later i'm throwing something up instead of just dry heaving. And i do it every time. You don't have to drink the whole bottle but a few swallows, just so you are actually getting sick on something. My face still had broken vessles but not as many and my face wasn't puffy at all.
