swollen lip?

I woke up around four a.m. with a hugely puffy lower lip that's since gotten back to nearly normal (it's noon where I am).
I understand it's usually a sign of food allergy, but I've never had it before, nor have I eaten anything unusual these last couple of days. Has anyone else had something similar? Way back when I was tested for allergies, and a couple of food allergies came up, but because they never bothered me I never cared, in particular because the scratch tests often come up with false positives. Is it possible that an otherwise dormant allergy was activated by pregnancy? Or could this be something else altogether?

Re: swollen lip?


When I was 3 or 4 months pregnant, I develped HIVES all over my body for like a month or more and was on I think, Benedryl. I was also testing positive for rheumetoid arthritis, but after I had my son months later, I tested negative. It is weird how pregnancy brings stuff out in people. Sometimes I believe it is a trigger for things we have in us that we may have never knew about. It does sound like an allergy. Just think of what you ate the night before that may have triggered it, but definatly talk with your doctor, it won't hurt.
