Hello to all,
I am hoping by putting my symptoms on here I may get more information about the above subject.
Over the past few years I have been getting a Hives rash. I discovered after some time that the trigger to it is muscle fatigue. I went to a dermatology specialist a couple of years ago who told me that what I had was called Physical Urticaria and the cause was exercise.
I had a break from going to the gym due to this and thought that would be the best option.
However I am now wanting to get fit and improve my fitness. However I still have the Hives problem.
The only thing is I have read and studied on the internet about Physical Urticaria and what it says is not the cause of mine.
I can exercise with no signs or symptoms of Hives and I do not have a problem whilst exercising. My hives start approximately 24hrs after I have been to the gym, when my muscles are aching that sets the hives off, when my muscles are fatigued from the workout.
I am currently awaiting results from a skin biopsy to see if that identifys anything.
I have been told that it's rare what I have and at the moment it is being put down to an Urticarial type of rash. However due to the fact of this and because dermotologists have found the symptoms to be strange I am starting to think that there is an underlying issue which paints the full picture. I have spoken to people that have basically good knowledge about the human body and most have said that it sounds more like an issue with my muscles or immune system which is causing the hives rash.
The hives rash when it is happening makes me wheeze and can also make me feel tired and short of breath.
If anyone on here knows of any information that may assist me then please let me know.
Thankyou for taking the time to read.
