very bad, you should not eat any canned food at all! you should eat pears naturally, or you can cook it in sugar.
prednisone, as i told you, is real bad but the problem is that its the only alternative in acute phase. Its possible you reacting to sulphites, but its not the cause of your urticaria and angioedema. its only aggravating the disease.
well in case you take prednisone, you should have 60 mg for first 2days followed by 40 mg for next 2 days, 20 mg, and 10 mg and stop. treatment should be descending.
The panic attack and sensitive smell is just a psychological phobia
you shud not worry about
that. instead you must prepare yourself mentally and adhere to the fact that you gonna get well soon.
well gud luck for tha nature appointment
its quite a long treatment and does not work for chronic UA!!!! and one more thing, dnt mix treatments, go slowly one by one, and i'l advise you medical treatment first, then when finally diagnosed as idiopathic, you can try homeopathy. do let me know how u are, and wats in your treatment, Hope work is going on... u take care and dnt forget your medications. if therz not much improvement, i'll recommend you replace phenergan and start famotidine, an H2 potent antihistamine that will work against the angioedema, but keep taking your medicines like i told you for 5 days, and then go for a change if therz no improvement, from phenergan to famotidine keeping zyrtec dosage the same..
and you have to be comitted towards your treatment. dnt just lkisten to any doctor, really very little among them, are in contact with biomedical research and their treatment are usually outdated
be courageous spiritgirl.. therz a long way to go, and therz always light at the end of the tunnel
