I’m 36-year-old male and have had this cholinergic urticaria for about 7 years. Then asthma started 4 years ago.
It is really a piece of crap to deal with, and I deal with it every single day!!! I’m seriously searching for a cure. I’m a nurse in one of the top 10 hospitals in the USA, and I’m in Chinese medicine school studying acupuncture and herbology.
I want to end cholinergic urticaria! I had an acupuncture treatment by a teacher and fellow students, and for 24 hours I was CU free. I was able to sit in the sun, sweat, it was heavenly. I could physically feel it leave my body. I hope to figure out what the hell this is, and I’m not alone.
I’m so glad there is a website like this. I know I need to stop dairy, stop gluten and force myself to sweat. The sweating part scares me, because the hives make me feel so crazy insane and itchy and they burn like crap. It’s not fair!!!
I want to ride my bicycle and go for a run, but instead this stupid illness has made me a couch potato!! We have to stick together and share our cure stories to help each other out.
