Well i have autoimmune disease. I can't remember what other word he told me after the disease part. I also have inflammatory issues. that is very painful!! I have had MRI's done , x-rays, ultrasounds. nothing is showing up wrong. I had been doing super well for a week , no hives, nothing, and then today i wake up and am covered in hives, head to toe! But i had a dizzy spell, which i've never had anything like it before. I was in the kitchen and i just started getting really dizzy and almost blacked out and then my whole body broke out into a sweat. It didn't last long, but i did get really dizzy shortly after the first one. Does anybody know what would have caused it? I've had problems with hives for the last 6 months now. I am seeing an allergist, and am on medicines trying to calm down my immune system. has anybody have any problems like this before? i would love to hear and get any tips on ANYTHING. It's very hard havin this with a 4 yr.old and a 1 yr old. but today was alittle too much for me, really scared me!
thanks! Amber
