I have had these hives since Oct 2006. Im at my witts end here! I have had every test possible,Nothing shows up.I am going to a Allergy clinic now and have been for 2 months.still nothing.Im taking 10mg singualr at bedtime. 5 mg clarnix 2 x day,150 mg zantac 2 x day, 10 mg zytrc at bedtime.I have been taking atenolol 20mg for 30 years for B. They took me off of this last wed,said it was a beta blocker and will give it a try for a week..Didnt help,,I have hives this morning.I usually go 1 day a week with none! its my day of fun! I am getting very depressed over these nasty things.Its put a hault on my life.My eyes swell shut, they cover my whole body,all different sizes all different shapes and some are white ,some are red. I have kept a log of everything I do daily,what I eat goes on the log,I take pictures of the hives mthe times they come out ,each time I go to the clinic I take my log with me.I have had test after test.Right now I am waiting for another series of blood tests that they took last week. The skin test they did came back, allergic to ,shrimp (my fav) Onions (my fav) Peanut ,soy, They taugt me how to read a label for soy products,I EAT NONE OF THIS STUFF!The worse part of this is I have learned to deal with the small break outs just as long as they are not on my face or neck but when my eyes swell closed its scarey.I carry a epi pen with me,I have these hives in my mouth many times but nothing in that causes my throat to close up. Why cant they figure out what is causeing these out breaks? I am tired of taking meds.Im tired of everytime I call the clinic they want to give me steroids.i have took so many packs that im swelled up.35 pounds worth. I called them a week ago and it was the same thing.we will call you in predisone pack.I told them,,dont waist your time,I will not take it..All it does is clear them up for a day.I want them gone for good.They have called me in Doxpin now..I dont even know If I want to take it. Anyone having these same troubles? I cry all the time.I cant work,I cant see to drive becasue of the hives on my eyes. Im so sad that I can pin point this probem.. :(Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
