Has anyone here had the mumps as an adult? I have it and I'm miserable. Both sides of my face are super swollen and my and ears hurt. At this point, there's no fever. I started noticing the swelling about 3 days ago, but had attributed it to allergies. Then today I just started feeling "not right" so I went to the doctors and I was diagnosed with mumps. If you've had it, how long does it last? Do the symptoms ease up after a few days.....any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.Answer Question

I had them on one side as child but I got them on the other side as an adult. The night before I left on my honeymoon to be exact lol. My doctor told me to take ibuprofen and the discomfort only lasted about 2 or 3 days.
