Please, please go see an endocrinologist. Ask to be screened for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. My daughter had symptoms similar to yours, and we had almost given up all hope before we found articles like this one: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2810698/ Basically, even if your doc says, "Yes, you have Hashimoto's, but your Thyroid is not yet low, so we would not treat with thyroid replacement," - EVEN if they say that, show them the article and ask that you been given 60 days to try it. I am on a mission to share this life-changing information with as many chronic-hives sufferers as possible. The general public does not understand how debilitating this can be. Good luck!View Thread
