Food Allergy?

I woke up Saturday with my upper lip swollen. I thought maybe i had hit myself in my sleep but i recalled that this happened about 8-9 months ago as well. Later on Saturday the swelling had started to go down but my knuckle joints began to swell up and stiffen like i had jammed every finger and my hands started itching horribly and no amount of scratching would make it better. This lasted all night saturday up until about 3 pm sunday when i took some benadryl thinking i may have had an allergic reaction. That took care of the problem until today when my hands again started itching uncontrollably.

Is this a food allergy of some sort?
