confused  Hi
I am new to the board and as I have read through them, I think I belong to each board.  I have demographic skin also called skin writing.  I have chronic hives and allergies also I am allergic to myself.  I rubbed my eye a minute ago and now my eye the is totally swollen.  Is chronic urticaria the same as demographism?  I have COPD and the Pulmanary Dr. get angry with me because I can not use any of the inhalers or breathing treatments without causing my chest to hurt and getting upper respirtory infections.  I have burning sensations under my skin all the time.  It scares me about the alburteral being banned, it is the least one that causes me problems, but even that burns my chest.  My lung functions are severe but I am allergic to so many things that the dr's don't know what to do.  I am so scared of meds because I have had so many reactions that when the dr. mentions something else.  I PANIC.....  Does this sound like what others of you have?
I also have discoloration to my skin.  I have a malar rash, my ANA is positive and elevated plus my CRP has been elevated.  The rumy Dr. says that I do not have lupus but that I have fibro.  Does anyone else have discoloration of your skin also?  Mine is the palms of my hands, my face, neck and my breast.  Does anyone else have these things.
I also have tachdycardia which is set off by the inhalers and breathing treatments also.
Thank you for your help/pp

Oh my goodness! You definately have a lot of stuff on your plate! I can't comment on any of your questions, I'm sorry but I'm sure someone might be able to relate to something you have. Oh Chronic Uticaria is simply chronic hives, welts or rashes. It sounds like demographism and CU have many similiar characteristics but typically CU doesn't produce lines (or skin writing). Have you ever been tested for Lyme disease or have your thyroid checked?

redface  I have not been tested for Lyme disease, however I have had my thyroid checked many times. Normal.  I have a constant red malar rash over my nose and cheeks and then a chronic discoloration of my left breast.  Also the palms of my hands are red.  I do test positive ANA, but the Dr's say that I do not have Lupus.  I am getting to feel like a real freak because the dr's just brush everything off and each one give me a different diagnoises and I think it is because I do not look sick.  They look at my nails, my hair etc.  and I am not running a fever and think that I should be lying in bed.  I do have chronic pain but I have to carry on my life as well as I can.  I don't know what the dr;s expect.  Like my husband said Can't they see?  Except the COPD, fibro, and sleep apnea.  I did have 2 episodes of where I did have lupus reactions to 2 medications dianoised by 2 different dermatologist, however, they said that after I quit the meds, this should have gone away.  I don't know....I told my husband to put on my tombstone "See I told you that I was sick."
Take care/pp
ps. when I put purple in on the box why does the ink not change to purple?

That is definately frustrating to KNOW that something is wrong but yet doctors cant seem to find it. I have something similiar going on right now but I'm finally making headway (I think!). I am so sorry you are going thru all this.

If you choose purple from the drop down menu but it doesn't change your text color. Try typing your post, highlight the text by holding the left mouse key and blue box all the letters then choose the color from the drop down color menu. See if this helps. If you already have purple in the drop down, in order for the highlighted text to change color, you need to highlight it, change it to another color then choose purple again.

Thank you, for the help.
I will try to do that and see if the purple works.
I hope that things go well and you do find the headway that helps.
Peace & joy/pp
