I have had chronic hives for over a year now with treatment continuing. i have developed a harmless lump on the back of my leg also. all my joints crack loudly every time i move from my neck, shoulders, arms, elbows, hands to my hips, knees, and ankles, i am not sure what is causing this to get worse. i also have feelings of nausea about once a day, i feel randomly full, my hands go numb and get a cold sweat randomly even when the weather is nice. and most recently i seem to have developed something with my right ribs. i have a popping feeling that happens when i breathe heavily or i push on it. Any insight on the rib situation? or the whole thing? i do have a future doctors appointment.

Wow, your going through a lot right now for one so young.
Wish I had some advice, there are other past thread on here about rashes I
strongly recommend you go take a look, it might offer up something.. Your not alone
in dealing with rash, could be a reaction from a medication or food your eating
so take notes of what your eating and coming in contact with, that is making it worse,
that would be a start in trying to pinpoint a cause and will help the doctors you'll be seeing,
make sure they rule out chicken pox's, might be that...
I get a rash with a medication I'm on and have to use a steroid cream every other night and
anti histamines...
maybe try Benadryl to see if that helps ( it can if it's an allergy)
Good luck with the doctor's and lots of soft hugz...

yes it is so far unresolved i have been going to childrens hospital in boston. i am still undiagnosed and have yet to inform my doctor of my new symptoms. i am already being treated for chronic hives and i have no allergies to anything at all. i have had many tests. i am allergic to myself per say. i was just wondering if my other symptoms could piece together a diagnosis

I'm so sorry that you are going thru so much. I tried finding any information on the internet but I keep coming up with Rheumatoid arthritis to Eczema (which it doesn't sound like what you have). I sincerely hope the docs can help you and please mention these new symptoms to your doctor.

There are allergies to SunLight and some people are allergic to Water, it could still be an allergy as they
can't test for everything...The important thing is to try to remain calm through all this and you will get help..
Someone out there will have an answer just hold on, you can and we'll be with you, hopeing for the best...
So for now just take my shoulder an lean on me, til you get an answer...
Prayers to you and keep us posted, when is next time you go to the doctor?
Soft Hugz for now...
The hardest thing to do is having to wait and many of us here have been there, too...

thanks for all your support. i'll continue waiting. my appoitment is in a few weeks but the doctor i am seeing is only an immunologist . after that i will have to come home and probably get more tests or just keep taking medication. i will settle for an answer besides they don't know

The rib issue can be a difficult thing. I am currently dealing with a rib issue also. Mine is on my left side. I have a popping feeling also. Of course mine is due from a back injury from a car accident but they are not sure what it is. Im sure all the coughing I have done due to my asthma doesnt help the situation. They say all my xrays look normal but something is not right. Sometimes when I breath I feel my lower rib pop in and out. My ribs are also very sensitive to touch in that same area. I have been to lots of appts and right now they are focused more on my back injury than my ribs. I have future appts to so idk I guess I will see what happens with that. If you find out anything let me know and I will do the same. Good Luck!!!
