In the last 5 years I have had hives that last for weeks at a time. Right now I am going on 7 weeks and counting. I have been told that there is no cure only maintance.. Well the maintance dont work either so what to do.
I am thyroid medication for last 5 years it has tested fine, been told I have renauds disease(spelled that wrong I know), possible Lupus because sometimes it can take years to get a positive testing, I have swollen joints in knees hips, ankles and wrists, but that is from loose joints which is not always bad to have.. :)
But they say is causing arthritis go figure...
I was perfectly healthy 5 years ago, active, out going, raising my 4 kids.. Then I got tired, started gaining weight(thyroid) then hives broke out so then came steroids, then the swelling joints and pain started to the point that at times I can not get out of bed. Nausea, grouchy and after all that of course my mental stability crashed last year and I had a nervous breakdown.. Dont know what caused that :). (six months of steroids)
This past January I started to feel great again, pains at 3 which was no pain to me, depression under control, losing weight, exercise and happy.
September 1st, the hives started, went on steroids they eased got on a regimine of histamines.. and guess what no help they are back.
I dont want to go through another time of being sick and noone finding what is wrong just guessing and using me as guinee pig I am only 38 years old and sick of it. I have kids to raise and life to live being bed ridden half the time is not an option..
If anyone can help would appreciate it..
