Hi,

The treatment of your angioedema depends on the type of angioedema you have. There are several types of angioedema and you may have one of the following: acute allergic angioedema, non-allergic drug reactions, idiopathic angioedema or hereditary angioedema. The swelling occurs when small blood vessels in the subcutaneous tissues leak watery liquid. It is important that you know which type you have for proper management.

Take care and keep us posted.

I have no idea what kind of angioedema I have  - the doctors were unable to determine it - seems like I am alergic (allergic) to everything - but the swelling comesand goes without any predicted time or food

It sounds like you may have idiopathic angioedema 'idiopathic' means -for unknown reason.

good luck
