    Any Ideas of why I swell up at night...

    When I get up my hands and feet and lips are all swollen...

    Lips look like collegen injections....Huge...

    Takes about 2 hours before I feel back to normal....

    Lips are also numb when this happens...

    In the morning if you poked me with a pin I

    would fly all over the room like a balloon....

    HELP.....NEED IDEAS....DOC THINKS I"M NUTS.....

    You might try looking up hereditary angioedema and see if your symptoms are similar to that. I was tested for it at one point, but after researching it my type of edema did not fit the symptoms.

    Took me 9 years to figure mine out, but it turned out to be idiopathic orthostatic edema. Came on at the exact same time as the Fibromyalgia. I've read a few things that reference patients with FM having swelling, but not many. Personally, I think it's more common than what is documented.
