Swollen lips, swallowing difficulty, discomfort, redness, can talk normally, no allergies. Treatment?

I am a 55 year old white woman with no allergies. I woke up a few minutes ago with both my upper and lower lips swollen horribly. I did not eat or drink anything unusual yesterday and there were absolutely no symptoms when i went to bed. Now they are so swollen it is hard to drink . I can talk normally and they do not hurt. They are just very uncomfortable and red. What should i do ?

Hi, Bonn,
Thanks for query.
It seems that you are having some allergy giving rise to this problem.
Last night you might have taken something which might have produce allergic reaction.
Nothing to worry.
Take anti allergy medicine like tablet Cetrizine or Levo cetrizine and you will be alright.
Ok and bye.
