Have swollen finger, toes and lips. What is causing this?

My fingers and toes swell when I lay down. It can be very painful by morning. This has been going on for about 2 months. I do not eat a lot of salt or products containing sodium (I try to be conscious of what I eat). Within the past three weeks, my lips are swollen in the morning as well. What can be causing this swelling?

Hi ! I am not aware if you reside in a cold region, where such symptoms may be a feature of Raynaud's syndrome. If not , then I would suggest you to consult your family physician, who apart from normal routine investigations, may also advise you for a thyroid function tests, and tests to rule out any arthritic disorders. In the mean while you may try some over the counter anti inflammatory and anti histaminic drugs for an immediate relief. You are suggested to take also a proton pump inhibitor drug along with the anti inflammatory drug. Wishing you an early recovery.
