I used to have occasional Hives, but now it's been 26 days, I have been to multiple docs, Derm, Allergist, Emergency Room, Internal Medicine, and now a new allergist, and I am beyond frustrated.  I have about 10 diff prescriptions I have tried, and I am pretty sure antihistamines make my Hives worse.  My internal med Doc told me some people are allergic to antihistamines.. Has anyone ever heard of this?  I also stopped going to work, but my Doc says I do not meet Short term disability requirements.  In other words, tough crap, suck it up and go to work.  I live in New York and my Short term disability case is currently pending.  I am almost at the end of my rope.  (Thanks for Listening)

Have you been tested for autoimmune disease? It's a simple blood test called ANA.
