Hey everyone out there,
I am a 17 year old female and the past year i have had sudden swelling episodes.I have gotten allergy tested, been put on every antihistamine out there and my tongue still swells. It will swell pretty much every day, some times several episodes per day. No one knows what it is. The only thing that helps is epinephrine, which has not worked a few times. Also my tongue will go down by itself periodically but it is rare. I was wondering if anyone has the same issue or if anyone knew what it could be. Any ideas are appreciated :) By the way it is not HAE, or Pernicious Anemia. Thank you!
