My symptoms are as follows
Hives on back, left arm & armpit, neck and face
Occasional sweatiness, kind of like a hot flash
I am 53 y.o. Female, post menopausal, no menses for last 5 years
I have taken the following meds since 1999 for a brain injury following car accident
In a.m. 300 mg neurontin, 75mg Effexor X-ray, 450 mg Wellbutrin XML
In p.m. 600mg neurontin
I also take for general health Centrum for women over 50 and a baby aspirin for family history of heart problems
I also take daily for hot flashes, tri-omega, flax and 2000 mg evening primrose, and flash fighters, a combo of **** quai, black cohosh,licorice, vitex and soy isoflavanoids.
The above symptoms started 2 weeks ago, hives were treated w/ antihistamines otherwise I have little relief. I do feel better for about 30-60min after eating and then the nausea, shaking, dizziness all come back. My doctor recently retired and I have an appt. with a new one on the 24th. The first appt. I could get after calling 5 different doctors offices. All were busy with the flu season. BTW I did have my flu shot awhile ago, so that's not it.
