Visit to doctor this morning for rash and hives...interesting!

Monday, January 07, 2013

I went to our regular medical doctor this morning and she tells me that the rash and hives I have are from an outside factor and not from anything internal...meaning that it isn't from anything I have eaten or drank...i.e. not gluten, etc. She said she could tell this by the thin while ring around the hives and larger areas of the rash. I couldn't see the!! She started me on a prednisone pill pack. If this doesn't help, at the end of the ten day period, she is sending me to a dermatologist for allergy testing. Been there and done that... dermatologist could not determine what the rash was at that time...two years ago (I think). It was just before I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease which can also cause the symptoms I currently have....rash and hives.

Dr. P. said that she was hoping we could get through 2013 without any strange issues coming up with Ken and I. Now she guesses that isn't going to!!!
I was so happy to see all our beautiful sunshine today. Sure felt that spring could be on it's way.

BTW: I also found that at least five of my meds have gluten in them. They are ordering in my meds from other companies that guarantee no gluten.

Hope all my friends have a wonderful week!!! Be safe and tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Blessings, love and hugs,

Enough "bad" things to keep life interesting
Safe travels for my sister and BIL driving home from Florida
Heat and electricity for our home
Sunshine that is beautiful!
Thankful for each new day that I am given!!!
Unexpected twists and turns in our lives
God is in the "miracle" business!!!
A general doctor who cares, listens and get you in quickly!
Thank you, Lord, for your guidance and patience with me!
Too many positives and blessings to list them all here....Praise the Lord!!!

    Praying the prednisone works or they can find out what is actually casing the rash and hives. I sometimes think the drs just guess!

    be careful with the prednisone! It is a steroid and will make your sugars HI! Don't you love it when they tell you "it's something you are allergic too"? After 8 mo. of itching, trips to allergist and dermatologist they tell me not to wear v neck blouses because some medicine (don't know which one) doesn't like the sun. I've got rashes where the sun never sees! emoticon
I'll be praying for you and requesting complete & miraculous healing! May blessings beyond measure be yours this year!

    Helen, hope the pill pack does the trick and puts and end to the hives. The one "good" thing about this is that you've realized that you needed to change where you're meds came from. Take care my friends and have a blessed day.

hugs...Mary Anne

    Doctors can be wonderful. But they don't know everything. Our comfort is that God DOES know what's going on with our bodies. May He give you grace to bear this "thorn" until the revelation comes for how to be rid of it! emoticon Shel

    I've suffered from hives since I was a baby and yet the doctors still can't figure it out. I hope they can solve yours. Glad the sun came out, I got rain and wind. Hugs to you and Ken.

    I didn't know celiac disease could give you hives, what an extra burden :( Wow, finding out five of your meds have gluten, would that have been enough to cause your symptoms then? I hope the prednisone works fast for you!
One of the positives in my life has always been having such a postive person as you for my friend!
