So over the past year I have been experiencing random swelling spots on my feet and hands that are red, hot, itchy and painful. I have also had some swelling on my lip and once on my tongue, as well as hives on my hips. This first started with my lip swelling, and then my hands and feet started getting little swelling spots that would go away after a day or two. The symptoms started becoming more frequent, so I went to the doctor and who asked me to get a blood test, which came back negative (not sure what she was looking for). I then went to an allergist who gave me a skin allergy test, which only showed I was allergic to ragweed, so that was not the cause of my symptoms. She sent me for a different blood test and urinalysis, (again, not sure what she was testing for). I now received a call and have to go back in to the doctor about my results, which won't be for another week. So something is wrong, but I do not know what it is. I am posting here wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar? I am really worried and the unknown and having to wait to find out is driving me crazy.... so I am hoping someone has experienced something similar and has found out what it is??
Anything to calm my nerves and help me know that it is probably not serious would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
I forgot to add that the doctor recommended to take reactin everyday, which takes away the symptoms completely. When I stop taking reactin the symptoms come back.
