?? Crazy thing happened at 3am

I woke up with this cough that wouldn't stop. There was mucus over my airway my body was forcing me to violently cough. My face and tounge and lips were swollen and I have hives all over my body.

I took Benadryl, and a shower and it sees that it went away except hives and my chest hurts from coughing.

My husband thinks I should go to the er or walk in. I think I'm fine and can see my doctor tomorrow as it's gone now.

    Sounds like a major allergic reaction to something.  Be careful and keep taking benadryl on schedule for a few days.  If you feel like you can't breathe call an ambulance.

    Is this the first time it's happened ? Has this ever happened to you before ? And yes, you need to go to the ER and tell them everything.

    I have really bad allergies and have woke up like that, it's horrible. I've also been to the ER due to sever allergies.

    You might have to have DH clean the bedroom top to bottom and wash All the bedding in hot water, including the comforter. The allergen could still be there and you'll just wake up tomorrow like you did today or worse.

    If this is an ongoing thing, that you're waking up in the AM like this or it becomes that way, have the house inspected professionally for Mold, Termites & roaches. Do this if you can't figure how or why.

    I was waking up like you did for Months and then it got worse. I was literally afraid I'd die in the middle of the night it got so bad. We found out we had a major termite infestation in my bedroom. I was allergic to the termites.

    I had it happen like this once before years ago due to mold growing in the house too, really really scary.

    Go to the ER, get dh to clean your room and inspect the house, have a professional come in and keep a journal.

    Hope you feel better soon, I know how horrible allergies can be. ((((hugs))))
