Hives= Allergic Reaction
IF you really do have Chronic Hives, it would be different. Why? I got it. You'd break out in hives all the dang time, for no reason. The air, the clothes, the animals all of it.
Get a Rheumy you LIKE and one that will listen. Where to look is at a teaching hospital.
And I have it, but I dont list in my DX because I am fixing it. How to fix? Exercise because you need to lose weight. Eat healthy. Basicaly in laymans terms this is arthritis in your lower back because your body cant handle the wieght.
And you need to get to a Rheumy. You have a autoimmune disease. You need to listen to them or you will be in pain. With your white cells off, you need a Rheumy and you need one now. If it gets too high, it can lead to serious disasters.
This is out of my PERSONAL experience, moderators not my medical experience. I am now in Remission from a tumor. I have autoimmune diseases, and I know how it is.
And Kate, I'm 28.
