Thank you, good doctor -- I'll follow that advice. Been taking ibuprofen after hard rehearsals, but realized I was substituting pressure for some muscle work, to hold the embouchure closed. The past couple days, been focusing on the opposite, and it's helped with a variety of things, as well as reducing the frequency of swelling after high register work. Still, I do my best to massage every day, regardless, now. PS - Thanks KT!
