I've got the same issues. Occasional lip swelling and nocturnal hives (buttocks, back of legs, sometimes waist and abdomen and often at the wrists). I've tracked everything I eat and drink and experience in life. I sometimes think I have it figured out then prove to myself that I don't - so you may be surprised by the rice diet not working. Going to an allergist now (internist gave up). I've only had it for about a month.
suffering the same problems. I'm 31, male, and I feel like I'm in pretty good physical shape.
History, In 2008 I moved into a new apartment, with carpet, and started to wake up with swollen lips, tongue. During the day, I noticed hives? swelling in the wrists, feet, and abdomen. Suffered with this for about six months, my internist, allergist had no clue what was going on. I finally gave up, and due to the timeline relationship to moving into the apartment and the symptoms, moved back into my parents home. Lived there for about 2 years and symptoms went away. I just bought a house and have carpets in the basement, where I spend most of my time and symptoms are returning.
So with this I'm suspicious of carpet cleaning agents, both in that apartment and now in my basement. Does anyone have a similar type situation?
