So about a month ago i developed hives and joint pain. I went to the doctor's and they said the only thing i can do they say is to take antihistimines, use calamine lotion and anti itch creams for the itching. Sometimes i will not have any and i think they are completely gone, and then a few hours later usually at night they come back usually terribly bad all over my arms, legs, chest, back, and stomach. It gets so bad and itchy sometimes, i just cry. It is very frustrating, along with the joint pain. It gets so bad in my knees that im crying and can barely walk. It gets so bad in my wrists i can't even hold a pen or a phone. I just want some answers and would appreciate any comments that could possibly help, thank you.
Hi, Your symptoms sound just like mine. I've been to several doctors and they haven't helped one bit. All i'm being told is that its an immune disorder and that my blood work is all good. I'm planning on seeing another dr. for my joint pain. Have you gotten a diagnosis yet?
I have been going through the SAME THING since November... the doctor's are of NO help... and I also have severe joint pain to the point that I don't want to move. Please provide more suggestions and information. Is joint paint typically associated with hives?
Also, in August I switched to Yaz (an oral contraceptive). In November I had my first breakout. The hives went away in December, but came back in April... all the while I was taking the same medication. Is it possible for the Yaz to cause the reactions?
