Has anyone ever had a problem with swelling lips? I made an embrochure change months ago because of occasional pain in my lips, but the problem hasn't exactly dissipated. Sometimes after playing even for a short while, I will end up with 2 pulsating veins in my lips. It hurts very badly sometimes, and I don't believe it is a problem with too much pressure. (Let it be known that when I first began playing trumpet that I tucked my upper lip under my teeth. Ouch! Could this be a cause?) What might this be? A pulled muscle, varicose veins, a tumor, or maybe I just need to practice more on my new emborchure? (I might just be a hypochondriac, heh.) I've been searching for info for the longest time. Any answers are greatly appreciated.
