Lip piercing pain/movement?

I got my lip pierced 4 days ago and am getting slightly worried. I currently have a captive bead style ring, which I've heard takes longer to heal than a barbell, but I'd rather not switch it out if possible. I had the bead on the outside of my lip when I got it done, and the next night the bead shifted in my sleep until it was completely inside my mouth, touching the back of my lip. I figured it wasn't much of an issue and left it there since I read that you're not supposed to move the piercing. It kept hurting however so today I rotated it so the bead was on the outside again. It still stings a bit but I have significantly less pain now that the bead isn't rubbing against the skin on the inside. Is this okay? Is the bead supposed to be moving that much on its own? I'm very unfamiliar with oral/facial piercings so I only have the advice the piercer gave me and stuff I've read online, and I can't go back to the place I got it done because I'm in another city now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Why on earth would you put holes in your face and hang bits of metal off them? Is this some sort of bizarre mating display? What sort of mate do you hope to attract with that? One that grew up in a trailer and will never earn much more than minimum wage? Is it to show what a badass you are? Because it just makes you look dorky, goth and emo.

    My advice is to pull that chunk of metal out, let it heal over and hope there’s not too much of a scar, chalk it up to youthful stupidity, get a haircut and new wardrobe, find a better class of friends, and start pursuing a decent job with upward mobility.

    You should be twisting the piercing so the piercing doesn’t become attached to your skin. Its normal for it to be moving around after such a short while. Ice it to avoid swelling and pain.

    The ring can and will move on its own; eating, drinking, talking, knocking it in your sleep, etc. can cause it to spin. No avoiding that, it’s just what round rings do, ya know? If the bead ends up in an uncomfortable position and you want to turn it, use your saline solution and clean hands to do so. Don’t turn the jewelry dry, that’ll just irritate it and hurt. Your lip will probably be sore for the next few days. Once you get past the first week, it should be feeling a lot better.
