I’ve had cholinergic urticaria for 8 years. I did allergy testing, food intolerance testing, all that, which nearly killed me!
After a year of benadryl and hospital visits, I found two medications that helped! For years, Singulair + xyzal suppressed the heat activated hives for about 6 years. But why is this happening to me?
Shortly after 6 years I guess I grew immune to my medications and they no longer suppress the hives. But, without the medicines, it is out of control, and I start to go into anaphylaxis. I have a healthy diet and make fresh juice every day, blood work is great. I research every for years what to do.
Then, I added Pepcid ac to my two medications, and it suppresses the hives- but it gives me headaches and makes me tired! Also, I don’t have heartburn and don’t think it’s a great idea to destroy my stomach acid to suppress hives.
What should I do now? Note: I also have tinnitus.
