Swollen fingers due to angioedema. What is the treatment?

My fingers have been swallen every morning for a few years now. went not the family doctor - he jut said I have "angeoedema" but I have no allerges to any of the foods.. recently I have experienced extreme dizziness, and nausia... no vomiting but if I ate anything probably I would give it all back... my blood pressure is 117/78. In the morning, when I jus open my eyes, my fingers are very swallen and painful to touch, I can't bend them, have no strength to put on jeans... it somewhat become tolerable through the day, but still painful... The recent dizzines (as if I am on a very rocky boat) while I am still in bed just waking up - scares me.... NO, I am not pregnant (IUD/Mirena. Works great.) I keep a good ballanced diet, no diabetics, I'm 5ft8. weigh 165-167 lb, 42 years old. Also - I have on/off joint and knee swelling, and jaw muscle pain....
Any thoughts?

Thanks for writing to us.
The swelling in the fingers due to angioedema can be bavoided by avoiding the allergen causing the edema. You can also take oral steroids after consulting your physician.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
