: My husband has been experiencing eye puffiness and also a tingling sensation in his upper lip which will lead to a swelling in the lip. The swelling generally occurs while sleeping and is somewhat relieved in the day. Does this sound like allergy? We can't pinpoint any changes in our environment or eating habits. This occurs at random any time of the year.
I've had the exact same problem myself. Sorry I can't be much help because I haven't gotten an answer either. It can occur twice in one week or it may not happen for months. I've been told it's allergies but the last time my face swelled up I got a shot of cortisone, epinephrine,and took benadryl and predisone and it still took a day for it to go away. Like your husband, I have been unable to pinpoint any food allergy or environmental cause. Please let me know if you get any relief for your husband's facial swelling.
