Swollen Tongue
About a year ago I began waking up about 4 or 5 AM with a swollen tongue.  After spending time in the emergency ward receiving injection and steroids my tongue became normal.  It was believed to be caused by my BP medicine which at that time was Lisinopril which I had been taking for 20 years.  Since January I have gone through 4 or 5 different families of BP medicine, but still have the problem.  I am currently recording all my food in a diary hoping to find some connection.  My allergist has had me not eat any pork or beef.  The swelling happens over 12 hours after I eat anything and it always happens in the morning.  Can anyone help?

Hi
Welcome to the forum!
If you have acidity and GERD then the acid reflux is causing the swollen tongue. Maybe antacids will help you. It can also be alcohol and food allergy. It is a good idea to keep a diary of what you eat. Deficiency of iron, Vitamin B, yeast infection, syphilis or dry mouth are the other causes of swollen tongue.
Contact with tooth pastes, mouth washes etc too can cause a swelling. Discuss this with your doctors. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
