Swollen Lips and Tongue Rolling?

It's been about 4 hours since my mare got her shots, and I walked out to go feed and she comes up with the left side of her mouth puffy, and she's twisting her tongue around and playing with it? It seems to be bothering her a lot but not putting her off her feed. I opened her mouth the best I could (she shyed away from it which is abnormal) and there is no odor. Her tongue doesn't seem to be swollen either. She just opens her mouth and twists her tongue everywhere. She's been shaking her head too. Nothing else seems to be wrong. The whites of her eyes appear if i'm getting anywhere near her mouth. Are there plants or allergic reactions that can cause this?

Call the vet and run it by them, seeing as she has just had her shots.

Our vets out here close, unless its an urgent emergency. Than the only thing you can do is rush her in to the vet office. Which there isn't even a guarantee there is a vet there. I'll give them a quick call and see if anyone picks up. Normally a machine does.

WOW, scary thought, our vet always leaves an emergency number, there are three vets here in different towns and they all cover for each other.

No answer, just a machine :/ Once again i'm on my own on this one I guess. Isn't the first time. Anyone have any ideas on what could possibly help the swelling in the corner of her mouth?
