APD help!

I developed unexplainable hives and angio edema 2 1/2 years ago.  I am taking 3-4 different antihistimines daily, but I still have outbreaks of hives and swelling around my period and mid-cycle.  My sister (Nurse Practitioner) did some research and found out about the rare Autoimmune Progesterone Dermatitis disorder.  I was able to convince my PCP to refer me to an allergist to see about testing me for this.  The allergist was resistent even with the valid medical research my sister did and has been fighting to prove me wrong even though I tested positive to progesterone sensitivity (delayed reaction hours after I left his office).  I let him know about the delayed reaction the next day and he prescribed a prednisone taper pack.  I am wondering if I should see a dermatoligist instead of the allergist?  Or just go see a Gynocologist?  Some of the recommeded treatments for APD lead me to think an OBGYN should be involved due to the side effects.  I would also like some feedback from anyone taking the GnRH Agonists (aka Nafarelin) as far as types of side effects and how long you are allowed to take these.  Also if anyone knows of any type of doctor in the San Diego area who may know something about diagnosing and treating this, please send me a message.  Thank you!
