the purse lady, i have the same situation... i was in Iraq and i started experiencing the same thing. i've had my thyroid tested and the results were normal... i'm currently taking sulfersalasine and prednisone. the prednisone keeps my lips from swelling and the hives at bay for now, but i cant and i wont stay on it forever.
Hi, I just read your post about your hair loss. Did you ever find out what the problem was? I have been having the same problem that you experienced a few yrs ago and I still don't know what's wrong with me and why I'm losing hair. My scalp also feels very sensitive when I movie hairs around. I'm about the same age as you. How did the evening primerose oil work for you? I'm taking it now. Thanks! grace
