My lips suddenly went numb quickly followed by my entire mouth. It rappidly spread to the left side of my face and then to my left hand. This lasted over ten minutes and then my hand returned to normal and my face slowly is. I am 53 year old male with no known conditions except for pitting edemia in my legs and occational swelling of my left leg, (that sucker can poof out there like a balloon sometimes).

Been seraching the net for answers but found many conflicting results. I do not have a headache, I do not have blurred vision (any more than normal anyway), I have no chest pains. Haven't been eating any foods different from normal. Right now my lower lip is still a little numb but most of the rest of me is back to normal. What could it be?
