I found this website that I thought was pretty interesting.  I didn't even know that CU even existed until I started moderating this forum.  So tell me if you think this article makes sense, especially about the part where hormones seem to be relevant to CU.  I found it interesting.

Makes perfect sense to me.
I think have CU.  In the beg. it was hard to associate the outbreaks with any type of triggers. Recently, WHENEVER I am stressed, anxious, nervous etc, my body gets hot, heart rate goes up, I begin to feel flushed, tingling starts and then hives break out.
I am sick and tired of doctors telling me that stress isnt the cause. I am convinced that this isnt a typical ALLERGIC reaction that is why clartin, zyterc, atarax and all of these antihistamines DONT help!
It makes perfect sense about the hormones.  What also makes sense to me that I have read about is the inability to sweat properly, if at all. 
I dont know what is going on, but I am so frustated. I dont want anymore pills.
