A question about the link between hives and anaphylaxis?
I have a severe fear of anaphylaxis, which I'm working on with a psychologist, but I just wanted to say that to put this into context. I also have recently been getting hives, which I could assume is in relation to the chronic anxiety. Obviously, when I get these hives it's extremely disconcerting.

I've done extensive research on different causes of hives, including allergies, exercise, stress, heat, cold, aquagenic, and so forth. I also know that hives are a symptom of anaphylaxis. My question is: can all hives lead to anaphylaxis, or can hives just be their own condition? I'm not sure if that makes sense so here's an example:

If you had exercise-induced hives, could that develop into exercise-induced anaphylaxis, or are these separate conditions where just the symptoms are similar? I hope this makes sense, but I'm finding the relationship quite confusing.
