The same thing happened to me starting in April of 2013. I woke up from bed and my top lip was swollen. I went to my doctor and he said I have an infection. He gave amoxicillin which did nothing. He then put me on Duricef which did nothing. Today was the worse ever, 8-15-13, I woke up and my top and bottom lips were so swollen I couldn't talk!
I DO notice when I wake up in the morning it's usually the worse. Anyway I went to Pittsburgh Allegheny Hospital and they drew 18 tubes of my blood for test. It's hard for me to believe stress could do this but I just got divorced and my 10 year old boy is very sick and I know I am under chronic stress. I have to stay healthy for my son so any advice would be so very much appreciated.View Thread
