I have something going on with certain areas of my skin. I get huge red, painful, swollen things on the tops of my feet, my ankles, shins, and knees. I also get these same patches on my elbows, forearms and wrists. They itch extremely bad, are very painful and swell up to the size of golf balls. I have tried every anti-histamine known to man. I have had every tests run that my doc can think of. My kidneys are fine, liver is fine. I have no STD's. My serum tests came back with a low BUN score of 5. My blood work came back with a low score on the RDW. That score was a 10. The Neut% was high, with a score of 79.9. My Lymph% score was low, a score of 12.1. And my Neut# was high, with a score of 7.47. My doc told me it was just hives and to just take my anti-histamines every 4 hours and maybe they will go away. I have looked up hives and nowhere have I read that hives are extremely painful and my doc says they do not cause muscle weakness. When the flare ups start I can not grip anything with my hands or lift anything and I can not walk.
Please, is there anyone who can help me? I don't know what else to do. I am so afraid I have something really serious happening to me and my doc has givin up on me.
