I am hoping someone can give me a clue. For the past three years I have had non-itchy hives on my stomach, back, legs. My GP said virus, my dermatologist said allergy. My allergist said it was not an allergy. Ran blood work and came back with autoimmune antibodies. Rheumatologist says it is my antidepressant and to stay off all meds for one year. I don't feel it is my antidepressant and I have tried to stay off medicine, but had to go back on my antidepressant. I have been on three different ones since then. Rash is still there, not daily, but pretty close to it. I have since started other symptoms. I have been diagnosed with osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. I have headaches, joint pain all over. It is really bad in my hips, knees, feet, and hands. The skin on my ring finger burns, but is not red. I now have trouble gripping anything for long periods. My memory is bad and I feel like I am in a fog. My skin is very dry and not to sound gross, but my feet stink and nothing I do helps it. I had a fungal sinus infection last December. This year I had a bacterial sinus infection and three antibiotics later am still fighting it. It is not funal, but I am afraid it will be. I go back to my ear, nose, and throat tomorrow for a double check. I am turning forty next year and have three children six and under. I feel like alot of this started after my pregnancies, which were perfect. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Tired of just not feeling good and living with it. Afraid something is going on and doctors are missing it. Thinking of going to the Mayo clinic for answers.
