Reiter's syndrome maybe?

I woke up yesterday covered in neon red hives. Thinking I was having an allergic reaction, I took some benadryl and went back to sleep. When I woke up, all of my joints were twice their size and swollen. It hurt to move. I went to the hospital, they said I had reiters syndrome, and put me on microbid and 50mg of prednisone for the next 5 days. I woke up again today covered in hives, and I can't find anything online that mentions hives as a symptom of reactive arthritis. Benadryl isn't helping with the itching. In addition to the prednisone and microbid, i take 20 mg a day of ritalin sr and 100mcg of synthroid daily. my blood pressure and temperature are both normal. I'm panicked, has anyone experienced anything like this?
