Why did my lips burn after pineapple?

A couple of days ago I got a fresh whole pineapple..topped and skinned it..ran it through the about 12 or 15 ozs. of thick juice.. as I was drinking lips started to get prickly and almost a burning sensation..I continued to finish it..within an hour I could barely touch my lips.. the sensation lasted almost two days..gradually feeling less prickly and can rest assured I won't do that enzyme in pineapple supposedly to you have any more information on this.
