My left ear occasionnaly swells to the point that I compare myself to Bimbo the elephant. On the last swelling it started by a itch on the ear lobe. The lobe then got reddish, then followed up the ear and started swelling, the ear was warm, red and huge. Then overnight my glands below my lobe swelled and swelling spread to the side of my face. It tooks two to three days for the swelling to reduce to normal size.
This is the third time this has happened. I showed pictures of my ear to my personal family physician and he dismissed it as an allergy reaction.
The samething happens to my lips. This happens much more often than my ear, the lower or upper lip swells so much that I am shy to leave the house. Very often it starts with a small swelling at the upper lip then spreads to the whole lip and sometimes transfers to the bottom lip. On some other occasions it starts at lower lip. Occurs approx. once a month.
I have no known food allergies, and my food intake is the same throughout the year. I very often analyse the food taken before the swelling and it is the same food I have taken the week before, but then no swelling occured.
What is wrong with me? I take many drugs, some for diabetes, the hearth, pressure... Same quantities and same drugs day after day.
