Hi safy...even I can understand your pain...I have been through this hell for 5 years...till today no one is able to detect this issue...may be I feel a group should be made where we all can discuss together what is the thing that is common ...which have triggered this disease...may be then we can find itz cure
Just joined this group to share my experience. I developed this condition in my late teens. My family doc chalked it up to heat urticaria and prescribed Benadryl. After about a month of no relief, I essentially gave up as other docs didn’t have anything different to offer. After 40 years of misery, I finally found an allergist that recognized the link between chronic heat urticaria and the thyroid. My doc had me get bloodwork done. My TSH was a bit elevated. So, he prescribed low dose Synthroid (Levothyroxine ) and the antihistamine Cyproheptadine. Six weeks after filling the script, I found myself symptom-free. This has changed my life, needless to say. Everyone’s different. Even so, I’d talk to my doc about the possible thyroid connection if I were you. I’m still in disbelief by the changes I’ve enjoyed over the last couple of weeks. I don’t fear warm rooms, becoming anxious or irritable, or spicy foods anymore.
I had chronic pressure urticaria for a couple of years. The doctors said it was an unknown auto-immune problem. I was prescribed antihistamine to help with the hives, but it didn’t do much. - I was turning 50 and went for my first colonoscopy. They found cancer. I had a resection removing 12 inches of my colon and the surrounding tissue. I immediately never had an outbreak of hives again. - I know how miserable this is, but never give up hope of finding the reason and cure.
