Couldn't find what you looking for?


I am 60. On no medication. I take multiple vitamins, an aspirin and that is about it. For the past 4 months or so, I will wake up with a swollen lip or tongue. Last night it was my tongue and I could hardly talk. I took benedril at about 2am. By about 8 my tongue swelling was subsiding. The bottom of my mouth was also swelled. This is frightening as I feel like it could work its way down my throat and I could stop breathing.

What is more frightening is the comments on this forum in regard to these same symptoms. Many have the symptoms, no one seems to know what the cause is. I am going to schedule a trip to my doctor and dentist and ask.


My partner also has similar problems with a swelling to the side of his face and tongue.  What was the eventual prognosis of your complaint ?
