I have been to the doctors about this problem but was basically told to come back when the swelling happens so he could see it. The problem is I dont know what is causing it so I am unable to make an appointment in advance. Last time I made an appointment by the time I got in to see the doc it had gone down. Basically part of my lip tingles before swelling at the same time one of my wrists does the same - the wrists are itchy and sometimes the hands. I think a possible cause could be insect bites but want to know how I can narrow down the trigger. This is quite embarrassing as i my lip gets so swollen on one side that it looks like I have been punched in the face. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you x
