Hi, I am 37 and in the past 2 or so years have begun getting hives when exercising or even hives when I get upset or nervous. This is NOT the only time I get symptoms. I also get extreme itching w/ NO hives when I am about 15 minutes into a run. I cannot exercise at all without getting hives that cover my entire neck, chest, around the breasts, forearms and they seem to travel down my stomache if I exercise for longer than 40minutes at a high intensity. I have seen my GP and I have seen an allergist. I do take zyrtec but it does not help. I also have asthma that I use an inhaler for. I have been diagnosed with cholinergic urticaria (hives) and exercise induced asphyxia (eia). I already know what I have. I want to know why and I want to stop masking it with a pill (which really doesnt anyway). I know these can be underlying for disease such as liver, thyroid and leukemia. What tests can I have done? What kind of doctor will know what tests to get so that I can find an answer? Please help. I will not settle for "this is just how it is".
