But the new thing is that now I've got a weird swelling on my lips. It's not the whole thing. It's kind of in the middle, but off to one side. It's not on the outside edge, but where my lips close together in the middle-ish. It feels almost like a burned sensation. I was thinking at first I was getting a cold sore or a canker sore, but there's not a sore developing at all. They aren't chapped or cracked. There's nothing that would indicate a bug bite or anything like that. Just kind of a swollen spot on top and bottom.
The only thing I've found on a websearch that seems related at all is food allergies. I haven't had allergy testing done yet, so I'm not sure if I have some sort of allergic reaction going on or what. But it would seem logical to me that if it were an allergic reaction it would be my whole lips, and not just the 20% I'm feeling.
I don't wear makeup very often (the last time maybe a week ago at this point), so I know it's not that. I don't even wear lip balm.
Anyway... I know I'm overdescribing this, but was just wondering if anyone had this as a result of being glutened or something like that.

At first I thought I was allergic / sensitive to salt because it was happening every time I ate salt.
Then I am thought it is only when I OD on salt. I love salt on my watermelon. But, that's not the case either.
On a lighter note, now everytime I see someone with large lips I wonder if they have food allergies

My lip will actually swell up a bit too. Just this bump on the inside and a bit on the top/outside area. It is soooo uncomfortable and annoying but yes, does go away after a few days.

Since giving up gluten it also seems like my lips have shrunk (or are slightly swollen). I now feel like I have buck teeth a little. Like my lips won't close all the way when I relax them.
This is a strange disease

Is this something in the Amy's frozen dinner, or something related to celiac? Ive had this happen before after eatting Amy's dinners but not as severe and its never happne ever till i went gluten free. This is weird. Any doctors reading this?

My son has had this twice. The second time we went to the ER and they kept him there overnight. It did not respond to the standard treatment for allergy. Finally they decided it wouldn't get any worse since it hadn't yet. It got better slowly during the next day. They mentioned hereditary angioedema and we had him tested for it but it was negative. He got an idiopathic angioedema diagnosis. In other words she didn't know the cause. Could it be connected to celiac disease? Both times it happened during a glutening.
