Thank you spiritgirl!
Well, you have lifted my spirits for tonight, I have to say, I've been blessed that they're not on my face, but you're absolutley right you just don't know what you're going to wake up to in the morning. The weird thing is, it actually kind of wakes me up, I feel them coming on. So then I hurry up and take the antihistimes, which really just take away the itch, well sorta, but it's just bizzare. Anyhow, the docs started me on some new meds today, so we'll see how they do. I just can't believe 3-4 weeks ago I was perfectly healthy, and now my body looks beaten and bruised! Thank you for sharing that with me though, I really do appreciate that, and I'm sorry about
your mother. I can't imagine what that must be like. Just know the Lord will never give you more than you can handle! Thank you again.
Alaina - age 26
Ulcerative Colitis-- Diagnosed when I was 16. (It has it's ups and downs)
Chronic Hives (my newest endeavor) :)
Prednisone (30 mg and tapering was on 80 mg --for hives, not UC (but my UC is great right now because of the prednisone)), Xyzal (every 12 hours), Atarax (every 6 hours), Pepcid (every 12 hours), Doxepin (at bed time), Levothyroxine (.50 mg), and Ativan if needed, but I haven't really used it. I also have been loving Aveeno Oatmeal bath, and their calimine lotion when all else fails!
How did I go from being on no meds 3-4 weeks ago, to being on all of this now??? Just crazy!! :)
