I recommend getting to your doctor right away, then you may need a 'rheumatologist'.

Inflammation: Swollen tongue, hands and feet could be angioedema--all the symptoms you name could come from a food allergy, and that is one thing you would want to rule out before looking for more chronic and insidious diseases, because the treatment is so straightforward--don't eat the food. There are many other possible causes, however. Starting with an allergist would be a logical choice, though.
