I have been plagued by Chronic Uticaria for the last 6 years. I have given up an active lifestyle and the love of the outdoors for a semi-sedintary one and I am not the least bit happy about it. I have had a tremendous amount of stress in my previous life, but no hives. Now the only stress I have comes from the HIVES. Last month I attempted to hike on the slopes of Mt. Rainier (on vacation), it was 45 degrees and within an hour I was having a bout with Angioedema (my tongue was swollen). I am taking antihistamines, but still get hives whether they itch or not. I have been to my primary Dr. and to a Dermatologist but, since I have no insurance, and no deep pockets, their hands are tied. I have a multitude of other symptoms, that they overlook, that could be tied to a parathyroid problem, or whatever. The last blood test done months ago showed nothing out of the ordinary. I guess I will have to learn to live with the Hives and hope the other symptoms don't get worse...I was hoping to get into this remarkable support group here and I hope you'all are still out there somewhere. I was interested in the homeopathic treatments that were being tauted as helpful.

Hi and welcome to Healingwell! The CU topic hasn't been closed, it's under the same title but with part 2 was added. When our pages get too long, we close it and open a new post. That way when we have people searching for something specific, they can find their answers faster.

I don't have much advice to offer you, but I'm sure someone will come along soon. I just wanted to welcome you and let you know that the topic wasn't closed :)
