Randomly Swollen Upper Lip

Well, this hasn't happened before, so I'm a bit baffled by it. About half of the right side of my upper lip has swollen for absolutely no particular reason (at least none that I'm aware off) within about ten or so minutes. I don't have any medical conditions or allergies, I'm not on any medication, and I wasn't biting or sucking on it. It's kinda numb and feels like... well, like a lump. Makes my mouth look real lopsided because it's almost twice the size it should be. Anyone know what the heck caused it? Or how I can get rid of it quickly?

  • The same thing is going on with me only it is happening on the left side of my lip. This is so weird.Every time I go to sleep and wake up, my upper lip gets swollen. As the day progresses, it starts relaxing but never gets back to the original size. This started with me around February 2011. It is swollen right now. I saw an allergist, did all the detailed testing(patches and blood), and everything was negative (i.e. I am not allergic to any thing he tested for). He is now sending me to an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) for a lip biopsy to get to the bottom of this. I will update this post if we figure out what it is.Please let me know if you figure out what the root cause in your case is.
