I have developed what appears to be chronic hives. I am at my wits end, it is ugly itchy and keeps me up all night, wherever any clothing touches my skin I break out. I have been to the dermatologist numerous times, she finally was at a loss and told me to go to a rheumatologist, I am on my 2nd one right now. None of the blood tests show anything, but I am welting up like crazy from one random place to the other..allergy pills don't work. I have had this since 12/9/12, with very little relief. I have researched every skin disease known to man. If anyone has any answers or can direct me somewhere I would appreciate it. I also have joint pain and sometimes where the rash comes up it almost feels like the bones hurt. Social life? don't want to go anywhere anymore I am 50 and am at my wits end. Hopefully this rhematologist can help at least prescribe me something to keep me more comfortable.....If anyone has ANY answers please please help! Thanks you.......View Thread
