A woman identified as @ladytee_thuliehas shared a TikTok video documenting her experience with sudden swelling in her head, eyes, and hands.
Concerned about the worsening swelling, the next morning, she decided to remove her hair.
Ladytee’s condition worsened as days passed
However, instead of relief, her eyes started to swell as well, leading some people to mistakenly assume she was a victim of gender-based violence.
As the swelling continued to spread to her hands, she sought medical consultation to uncover the cause of her distressing symptoms.
To her shock, she was informed that someone very close and dear to her was responsible for her condition.
A helpful lady informed her that she intended to either die or lose her sanity.
Expressing gratitude for her early realisation of the situation, Ladytee stated that she began to recover gradually.
“My head started itching thought it was my hairstyle, so decided to unplait. The swelling got worse in the morning so I decided to cut my hair, My eyes started swelling, people thought I was a victim of GBV. Then my hands started, and I went to consult.
“Shockingly, was told it’s someone very close and dear to me that did it to me, The lady helped me and told me that, I was meant to either die or go mad. Thank God I stood up early. Baby girl was getting better.”
