My doctor said, "Now we have a reason" when she saw my Chronic Uticaria Index score of 50. Can anyone help me know what that score means? Is that high? Does everyone have a high score like that? Does it help in someway to have a positive result on that test...does that really mean it isn't food related?
I am so depressed over this. It has been three months and I feel like I have gotten no where. I have been on Hydroxyzine at night but that didn't help - infact I wonder if the dyes or capsules made the hives worse b/c my hives started getting really bad at night after that. She switched me to Xyzal and I am on day 4 of that but still have hives at night and wake up with them all over me.
I feel like I am getting nowhere and noone gets it and doctors don't seem to have the answers. Prednisone seems to be their goto drug, but the side affects for me were enough to keep my from doing that. Anyhelp would be greatly appreciated
