All of a sudden about 2 hrs ago, I started feeling it get larger.

I ate a stuffed chicken breast for breakfast about 4 hrs ago but that's all and I've had them before.

I've taken 2 aspirin so far and thinking about a ice pack be just don't know what's going on.

Nothing hurts so far, just seating here typing away for these post.

Any ideas gang ?

Maybe a bug bite? Is you eye red? Try some allergy Eye drops, take a tea bag and soak it in hot water and place over closed eye lid. If not better tomorrow call your doctor. Could be a sty.

My first thought was also bug bite.

Try a cold compress.

If it doesn't improve than see your doctor.

My first thought was on the "stuffing" of the chicken breast. Do you make your own stuffing or one that is store bought. If store bought, the store MAY add MSG for flavor. Just a thought.

If it's only one lid, probably a bug bite. If allergy, it would be both lids. Or, could possibly be a stye.

I just started taking Benadryl but still surfing from gas, I think the chicken wasn't cooked all the way through, it tasted good.

Anyway, belching up a lot of gas but hanging in there.

Lip? You're allergic to something either you ate, or otherwise touched your lip with (what else did you do besides eat chicken? Brush your teeth for example?). That happens to me with fish (accidently placed in a so-called "chicken salad)" or with capers, and a few other things. It could be almost anything. I'd avoid that chicken you ate. Next time it could be your whole tongue and pharynx, and an EMS ride to the ER. That's angioedema, could stay localized but could also go whole hog and be life threatening.

You could have clogged meobian glands in your eyes (sorry...don't know the right spelling!)....Use HOT compresses several times a day...massage your upper lids gently...and that should help. Sometimes, you can get an infections in the lids...so if that doesn't help, go to an eye doctor!


Sorry...if it was your LIP...ignore my advice!
