So, looks like I'm going to be okay. I got a GOOD LONG lecture from my doctor today about reading online, apparently as he tells me, I have no business looking up stuff I can't understand. LOL Smart man! My blood tests aren't showing hereditary angioedema. Just very slightly low because my immune system is messed up and inflammed from the Crohn's flare. But no where near anything being serious. So that was wonderful news. He still feels my lip swelling and joint problems were from the flare, and it makes sense.
He seemed a little irritated that I went over his head to my Crohn's doc, but um yeah that's what I'm supposed to do in a flare! So I see my GI on Thursday to see how long he wants me on this lovely Pred. I'm doing pretty well on the pred, just the mood swings are bad. With all the fear of an extra serious health problem, I was not the person to be around this weekend. But I can deal with the regular mood swings (I guess!), just as long as I don't have anymore swelling!
So thanks again for all the prayers, looks like they worked! Yes, Crohn's flare sucks, but I couldn't handle having anything else seriously wrong with me! :)
