Bugsndaisy: Not knowing what is going on with our bodies is worse than finding out the truth. Unfortunately, our bodies are very complex and can lead MDs down several paths before the right diagnosis occurs. There are several problems which can give you the symptoms described. Find the right doctor and make certain you're comfortable with him/her. A doctor who won't listen is the wrong doctor. I'm really concerned that you stated you haven't had a bowel movement in several days. This is not normal and should be addressed as soon as possible. This is your body's way of eliminating waste and can lead to complications. There are also several digestive problems that can cause hives and constipation, so you may want to consult a gastroenterologist. Until then, if you suffer from chronic constipation, you may want to ask your pharmacist about a stool softener. Good luck! If you just need to talk, give me a buzz. I'll be out of town until Monday, so if you respond, don't think I've forgotten you. Sometimes, one just needs a friendly ear, I know at times I certainly do!
Not an MD; just in med field and familiar with body's functions.

sorry i hadn't gotten back with yall sooner. I'm still working on my husband to give me the ok to go to the neuro. Which i understand his reasons for wanting to wait. My sons birthday was today 7th or yesturday cause it's after midnight, plus with christmas around the corner, he thinks that "finacially" we should wait until after the holidays. I can completely understand that cause with my being sick and all, his income is the only income we have right now.
I'm doing fine . I had one weird thing happen to me this evening. I was changing a light bulb. With my arms raised over my head trying to unscrew the little screws which hold the light fixture over the bulb while holding the light fixture steady, i actually began sweating and my hands were shaking. I actually couldn't feel the screws for a sec or two that i was holding in my hand. My fingers became numb but its as though i felt pressure in my finger tips as if someone was smashing my finger tips. When i was complete, before i got down from the stool, i literally had to bend over to get blood rushed back to my head. All i was doing was changing a light bulb! When i got down from the stool i felt as though my face was red and i was all shaky all over, i even snapped at my lil boy when asked me what was wrong. I felt horrible after that, but i felt aggrevated and didn't want anyone to speak to me cause i felt like i couldn't interpret what they were saying much less answer him. Does this make sense? Well sorry to just write and be complaining, how's gracie doing? I'm 26 , but she began being sick young and missed out on so much in her childhood, and here i am complaining. Tell gracie she is in my prayers everynight, i feel so petty cause i maybe get sick for a few days out of each month and she is dealing with this on a weekly basis. I had a friend who was in an accident and was pronounced dead for 13 min and suddenly opened her eyes and her vitals were back to normal as though nothing had happened. (this was four years ago) For those 13 min her mother refused to leave her bed side and was praying aloud in the hospital............I'm not trying to push my religous beliefs on anyone here and i appologize if i offend anyone in advance.........but man may not know a cure or really don't understand why we are sick.....but I know God is the reason i have my friend today and i know God can perform miracles for me, gracie, and whoever else believes and has faith in prayer.....
Sorry for such a long post i just felt i had to share that.
