User :   Hi, I am a 20 years old female, 5'6, 120 pounds. i have no prior allergies or disorders and am not taking any medications, or eating or drinking anything out of the ordinary. Everytime i go to sleep for extended periods of time (any longer than a few minutes), my lip is swollen when i wake up. No pain, just swelling, and it goes down on it's own within a few hours. Why do my lips swell when i go to sleep and how do i stop them from swelling? It's like the inner lining of my upper and bottom lips is swollen when i awake. This has been happening for years.
