Been getting chest pains randomly (very randomly) for about almost 2 years now. Depending on the severity of the pain and how long it last, I break out in hives. The hive at most times, are jut small dots. Every once in awhile, they become giant blobs that produce their own heat. At first I just used to get the hives on my scar on my right leg. Now it spreads to my mouth, scalp, ears, armpit, and back of the knees. After these "episodes" I feel very weak and heart rate is low. For a day or two my body tends to be stiff/ sore from this. Thanks giving evening I had one happen around 11pm. It lasted for 43 minutes and the hives were large and red. I what ends up happening is I take a 600mg ibuprofen and a Benadryl. The next day was really bad. My body would not work with me at all. at work, putting away pillows was a workout for me. I would break out sweating doing that or walking around. after my shift, I was in so much pain, that I could barely make it up the stairs. I ended sleeping on the couch at my parents. I am 24 years, done a stress test (normal reading) and four doctors telling me they didn't know what to do. I don't know what to anymore. I been to the emergency room many times, to point that they personally know by name and ask what new product we received at my workplace. Have any of you ever heard of these symptoms together at all? please tell me any info, because I would like my life back.View Thread
*note- I have posted this in skin problem community too*
The symptoms are Chest pain( ER doctor told me it was Costochondritis), hives( but only shows up on my scar on my leg), recently had an episode where my hand were cold, on and off sweating, and weakness after it settles down. I don't know who to turn to cause I have doctors point here and there and nothing done about it. Can anyone point me to the right direction please? The only the doctor gave me was a bottle of 600mg ibuprofen. they said my heart was fine during the ER. I am tired of it popping up.View Thread
