I have some questions maybe someone here could help me with. I have had crohn's disease for 10 years now. I have learnt to manage it and deal well. However, in January 07, the palms of my hands itched really bad. You could see red dots under the skin. At first, they weren't anywhere else. As times has went on, I break out in hives on my neck, shoulders, chest, stomach, back, butt and legs. They miagrate. It isn't an everyday occurance, but more often than not. They have been on my face, in my hair and my ears a few times. Within the last 3 months, I have been to my family doctor 3 times, my gastrodoctor 2 times, the emergency room 1, and the determotoligist 1 time. Everyone's answer is I don't know what is causing it, but you have the hives. The determo bioposied one and said yep it is the hives. Take allegra in the morning and zyrtec at night. No other answer. My gastro doctor took me off all my crohn's meds expect remicade (which I have been on for 3 years) to rule them out about 10 weeks ago. My family doctor has referred me to an allergist on the 20th of the month. I went to the ER because it felt as if someone was sitting on my chest making it hard to breath (which has become a common occurance with the hives). I am always tired and have absolutely no energy. Can anyone shed some light on what could possibly be going on?
