Im going to a allergery speicalist ,i have been for about 3 months..Im over the steriods.It seems like every time I have a out break its a steriod pack.I told them NO MORE.Ive bloated up and feel like crap.Anyway.They did an food test, taught me how to read the labels on different foods.I know I can not eat Peanut,Onion,Shrimp.So i have not touched any of it.. But I still have these hives everywhere.I may go 1 day a week with out any.This has put a hault on my life.My eyes swell closed, these are not small hives ,they are huge and everywhere. Like today,my eyes are puffy so sorry about the typing!! I am at my witts end.Im take 2 clarnix ,1 zurtec,2 zantc,1 sungular everyday! I have been to every web site searching.i have had every blood test that could be done..Nothing! just more meds every.i dont want medication,i want the cause of these hives.. anyone else have hives or any suggestions..I am at the point now that i refuse to eat anything..

  • Drink noni juci in the morning and before sleep, it will go away. I had the exact same thing when I was 18, huge hives all over body, super itchy too, eyes bloated. I went in for a shot of steroid which only helped for a few days then they came back. I was then prescribed the same crappy medicines that you are taking and they helped for a little then the hyves get stronger. What you have is Urticaria, or that is what I was diagnosed with. Doctors told me it could be yeast I was allergic to or some other crap, but after months of their bull**** I started looking for my own remedy. I was helpless till I found some support message board for Urticaria. On there people listed all kinds of stupid temporary remedies like acupuncture and other ones that didnt seem promising till someone mentioned noni juice. Like most natural medicine you wont feel relief for a couple of days untill the juicie goes to work, but it will heal it for good. The thing is it came back for me when I stoped drinking noni juice after the first bottle, then I continued drinking it again, and about three or four bottles later, it never came back....trust me, if you want to get healed, this is it. The only reason I am writing this is I feel your pain. Ive wasted money on docs...this is it, as easy as it sounds, its true.

  • Im up to trying anything. What exactly is it and where do I buy it? THANKS!! Im over all this medication! Thank You again.Try NAET- it takes one treatment per trigger- once you are treated for the allergen, the remedy is permanent. It eliminates one allergy at a time.No drugs needed.naet.comI used to live life with an epipen- not anymore.

  • NAET is harmless- if it does not cure you- it won't do anything at all.It is not a procedure, it is acupressure. It only stimulates the nervous system, like a light and quick massage and takes the allergies away.Your doctor does not want you to go for NAET, because he is afraid you might never come back :)This thing cures autism and other serious problems of the nervous system- same system that governs the immune system.If you were your best friend, you would bluntly tell me that you don't want to try- but you would not be letting somebody else make the final decision on your well being.End of the day, your doctor go home, to his peace. He does not go and live with you and see you suffer.How does he benefit if you get better forever and never need to see him again?

  • i suffer from almost the same thing. my hives are small and all over my face and neck. i also break out in a rash when i sweat ( i must be allergic to something in it) and i also take zyrtec, allegra, zantac and i have been on more prednisone packs than i can count. i am still searching for a cure and a diagnoses, but i am looking into angiodema, which is kind of a chronic urticaria. you can do a simple blood test for it; it may be worth it. =jenna

He does not go and live with you and see you suffer.How does he benefit if you get better forever and never need to see him again? I agree, and have posted on your other thread about trying NAET. The fact is, if Western medicine isn't helping you (and is, in fact, causing harm with repeated steroid meds), then why not try a different approach? There are many unenlightened docs out there, who say that acupuncture is just bunk - but this is not true! It is a very viable form of medicine used for thousands of years by millions of people. NAET is a more recently developed technique, but is amazingly effective. I believe nearly 80% of people who try this show noticeable, often dramatic, results. And, keep in mind that many MD's are also certified NAET practitioners (as well as chiropractors, DOMs, and Naturopaths). Please just read some testimonials on their website. It is hard to grasp, I will admit that I don't understand it completely. But if you read Dr. Devi Nambudripad's book it may help you understand. The bottom line to me, is try it and if you don't feel ANY change or ANY difference after one treatment, then at least you tried something new. I felt a noticeable improvement in my health within hours of getting my first treatment, and it is likely you will experience the same - I hope so! I still takes a number of treatments before you will be completely allergy free, but after each treatment I notice how much stronger and better I feel. Best wishesDOM

  • There is a condition called Chronic Urticaria which is linked to thyroid disease.Do a search for both at the same time and see what you find.
