Has anyone been diagnosed with cold induced urticaria along with Lupus, or any time in the past. I ask this because as a oung adult I had cod induced urticaria that was severe. I was on prednisone for it. I do get slight flairs of it now in my "older" adult life. I am trying to put tus puzzle together of mine. sever pelvic pain, hives, rash on face, fatigue ( I slept for 13 hous and I am still tired) , muschle weekness in morning,swelling in feet and hands, blood in urine, sun sensitivity, chrons disease. and now weight gain. No one can seem to put it all together. I was doing some reserch on line and I cam accross the Uticaria. Some of the sited do say that i is autoimmune disease. I guess my questions is if I had this in the past, does that point to Lupus now in anyway. My gp did a sed rate test and they said it was within normal range. Does this mean there is no way it could be lupus. I don't want to have it but maybe by having a diagnosis I can get some relief. The only time I was not in pain is when I was on Prednisone for chrons. I want to ask my Dr. just to put me on it so we can see if I get any relief.
Any comments would help, I need some suggestions to talk to dr. tomorrow. It is my pelvic specialist.
