Hives

Postby wendylou » Mon Aug 27, 2012 11:25 am

Hi All i was diagnosed with FM along with another illness called CRPS (or RSD) earlier this year. This is just a question, do any of you suffer from hives, i have been getting them for the past three years and was wondering if it was a FM thing.

I get them occasionally but other members seem to get them quite severely, especially *Lisa* so hopefully they will be able to offer you some advice :-D :-D

What type of hives do you have?

When you have an outbreak do you feel symptoms inhance?

The thing with hives is anyone can suffer from them at any time and can come and go.

If its chronic, which maybe the case if you been suffering many years then you should be under a skin specialist. They will look into what type of hives, the reason to why they are present plus medication options to help.

I have delayed pressure hives. Absolute nightmare and seeing a specialist each month as it a chronic condiition. I am on 3 types of different medication which dont seem to touch the sides.

As i suffer from symptoms when they come up (migraines/deep muscle pain/fatigue/generaly feeling unwell) this can point to an underlying problem that maybe that of an auto immune condition.

Hives can appear due to many other reasons like allergy but re searching there dont seem to be any link with FM and hives, well not so badly chronic like mine.

I did have a quick look at CRPS/RSD and hives and i did find a connection so maybe a chat with your GP to see if this can be the cause.

I am not sure what type of hives i have but i do get a very bad head and my pain increases when they occur. I will see my gp and see what he can do. They are never there when i see my gp i should maybe photograph them and show him the pictures!!!!!

I've had them a few times too, on my hands and arms mostly, but it starts with an itchy throat and ears. Dr gave me antihistamines and they seemed to do the trick, they just came out of the blue, never had hives in my life.
