I've fallen asleep in the shower once when I was a kid. The doorbell rang in this one floor lodge we were staying in and when my mom came back I was fast asleep with my face practically face down on the drain. I was just that exhausted and the hot water was so comforting!! I've also almost fallen asleep when I was older due to those showers with the nice comfy seats in them. But I don't think that the OP necessarily has any health condition. Exhaustion can be pretty severe, they say that driving while being that tired is like driving drunk. although I can't understand the swelling unless it was just from the water continually pounding down on her face? DocBastard- any medical opinion here as to what probably went on? Did she pass out or fall asleep? Should she see a doctor about it? And what most likely caused the swelling, the fall, water, or something else??
Brandi, it sounds like she just fell asleep - literally. She probably bounced around as she fell, likely striking her shoulder and head, and probably knocked herself out in the process. I see a lot of people who fall and lose consciousness, so that's my best guess.
