I, too, have this problem. It might not be life threatening, but it sure is a pain.
I have had this problem for two years. In January, when I finally went to the doctor, I found out that I have thyroid disease. My doctor says that they are connected. I still have the problem because the thyroid medication has to be increased slowly and I am not yet at a high enough dosage, but you might want to have your doctor check on this.
I am also taking antihystamines, but I sure don't like the idea of taking them forever. I have been tested for allergies, and they say I have none. But I wonder about food allergies. Could anyone that feels any particular food makes this worse reply and say what foods they have found to be a problem?
