I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Over the last 4 weeks, Ive been getting hives after work. I work as a bartender and the hives and indigestion only occur when I'm about to go to bed, around 4-5 am.

It all started 4 weeks ago when I got an outbreak of hives for the first time in 10 years. Ive only had a hives outbreak once. I figured it must have be something I ate and went to bed. The next couple of nights, before going to bed, my hands would begin to itch, and hives would follow. Then I wouold get a pain in my urethra. After an hour or so, I was fine and could go to bed.

The next morning, and the few following hours onwards, I would experience a
uncomfortable pain in my urethra. After a couple of days of this, I went to a doctor and he prescribe me an antibiotic and ruled out STD's. I thought I was cured until last Monday when the hives followed with indigestion reappeared.

Now I have the same symptoms occurring at the same times but now with indigestion.

Any ideas? I haven't been eating anything new or such.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Peekay, welcome to Healingwell. To me this sounds like a food allergy of some sort. The best way to find the problem of your troubles is to keep a food diary. Record everything you ingest even if it's a piece of gum. With a food diary you can find the common thread if there is one. Usually a food diary is best if done for 2 weeks - a month. Do these things happen when you are off of work?
