    wake up with swollen lips
    An_250609 posted:
    So I too have been suffering with the same symptoms for the last couple of weeks and really wish someone would post a definitive answer. But basically for the last cpl weeks where ever I fall asleep, may it be in bed or on my couch I wake up with my upper lip swollen. I can feel it come on while I sleep because under the lips start feeling chalky but no pain. This is really annoying not know what it is, not to mention showing up to work or early morning business meetings with a fat upper lip is not cute.
