sudden facial swelling
For the past two years I have had unexplained and sudden serious facial swelling.  These have landed me in the ER three times and have occurred 6 times total.  Each time I have been told:  ace inibitors caused it, another blood pressure medication caused it...then no answers. I am very concerned.  I was at work and had nothing but water to drink and no food for at least three hours and all of a sudden my lip started swelling.  By the time I got to the hospital, I looked in the mirror and did not recognize myself.  Before I did not have hives or itching of any sort.  The night before this instance, I developed hives in my evening education class and took benedryl which made it go away.  The next day at noon I developed hives and horrible swelling.  I did a lot of research and heard of angioedema.  Does anyone know of this?  I have two of the symptoms listed:  ibuprofin use and achohol use.  Can anyone help me with this?  No doctor seems to be able to so far and I cannot have this affecting me on my vacations and work hours anymore, plus it is horrible to go through!
