It sounds like it was a good thing that you only took one codeine.
You might have had an allergic reaction to codeine. Codeine allergies can be very dangerous and can cause reactions similar to what you experienced, or worse.
I have a friend who's entire body swelled up the last time she took codeine.
You might consider staying away from any drug that contains codeine until you can find out for sure.
