I’m about to hit the 3 and a half year mark for having cholinergic urticaria. Although we all know it and experience it, it truly is awful. However, I thought it was something that I could grit my teeth and just live with. I started to dread fall/winter or stressful situations. It’s crazy how I thought I could deal with it and then it just gradually started to dictate my actions. Anyway, I didn’t do too much research because I initially saw there wasn’t any medicine or surefire cure for it, so I’ve just been coping with it.
However, after combing through a lot of the forum and discussions on this site, I think I’m going to try to “attack” it by exercising and attempting to sweat as much as possible. I moved to Canada recently for grad school, so I’m already started to feel the pain of the oncoming winter. Other than consistent exercise, is there anything else you all would recommend? I eat fairly healthy but have put on some weight this fall because I’ve been afraid of exercising with the cooling weather. Thanks for sharing your experiences and advice everyone!
