I had the rast done. Took forever, they couldn't find a vein.
I swell both inside and out. Hives on the outside, very small ones, not like the big ones i got with poison ivy. My inside swelling is in the muscles, i make the worst popping noises when they swell. I swell everywhere inside too from my lower and upper arms and legs, to around joint areas and just the meaty sections in the neck, jaw, cheeks etc. It's everywhere with a flair and i sound like an old building when i move anything.
Some said RA, but my doctor told me it would be in or on the joint, not in the meaty muscle several inchest above or below, but they never could figure out the swelling, they guessed it might be a new fibro thing they don't know about.
I get the swelling in the nose so it feels like i have an allergy attack. When the swelling starts, i end up getting lung swelling too and end up with asthma attacks. They gave me proventil.
It just drives me nuts.
Thanks for the response :)
