So it’s been a while since I’ve been on this forum, my last thread was: “I am sweating again, no itching!!” Well basically my journey with cholinergic urticaria has started last ~autumn after using steroids, but it might be just a coincidence, maybe not the steroids started it.
Anyways, it was horrible, and within the start of summer I didn’t get any signs of getting better, not gonna lie, it was horrible, when it was ~27 C outside, and I couldn’t go out because slightest move would result in a horrible itching. However, it took a while, but then, within the last days of May my first sweat broke out and it only got better since then, I would be able to sweat, of course I could feel the burning while the sweat was trying to break out, but it would only last for a minute or two and it was bearable, and after breaking sweat I could just enjoy the heat without any itching what-so-ever.
Basically I was just enjoying my life throughout this summer as much as I could. I wasn’t active in the forum at that time (sorry), but now… weather here is starting to cool down again and today was the first time that I actually felt the terrible itching fully again and my arms got bumps all over them again. I can truly say, that today is the day when the joy has gone out of my life once again for a long time.
Good thing is that I finished school already and got a job in the office so at least I’m not gonna be doing a physical work, so no physical activity = no heat = no itching, but it’s still horrible. It’s strange how I was able to sweat throughout the summer and my body is still unable to adapt to it and it just fails again.
I had hopes to start working out this summer, but today, after this first painful attack all my hopes went away, so whatever. At this point I don’t even know what to do, I got my portable sauna with me, but I’m not really sure if I should still try to use it or not, basically I’m just lost now, thinking if it will ever go away.
I’m still young and if this disease stays with me for the rest of my life, that’s not the life that I would like to be living, but anyways, I hope that it has something to do with puberty or stuff like that and it will go away after a couple of years, when I’ll be 20.
Thanks for reading guys, I’ll keep you updated.
