For starters everyone has been an inspiration to me and how I feel about the situation now, knowing I’m not the only one in the world that’s facing this horrible problem. Sadly enough to hear some of you have been facing this for years. I’m going on two days!!!! I have been to the hospital twice and got shot up with everything imaginable. My symptoms started so randomly. I’ve never been allergic to any in my life. I have a sore throat and tremendous hives and rashes and itching everywhere literally! The hospital prescribed me Cimetidine 400mg, Prednisone 20mg, and Hydroxyzine Pamoate 50 mg. The only one that has really worked for me was the Hydroxyzine. I broke out horrible in rashes and took two of them and my rashes started to vanish as well as the itching. However I’m drowsy!! I thought in some way maybe this might help someone out too!.... I’m going to go see an allergen specialist soon to see if maybe Sulfastlixine will help me like many others. I don’t want to spend so many years trying to figure out what’s wrong with me I have a life to live and this isn’t it. Good luck to you others.
