Gosh your having it bad.
You need to go and see your doctor, and go and get a Full blood count, an IgE. and also a thyroid blood test.
You may have allergies but the hives might be underlying, to something like thyroid disease.
Dizziness and heart burn is also seen in thyroid disease too.
But the dizziness and heart burn could also be caused by the steroids,
I have been a sufferer of hives on and off for twelve years, try a apple cider bath, its smells awful, but seems to calm the hives down.
Is there a different doctor you could use? especially if you feel the doctor isnt listening to you.
Remember it is you whats suffering not your doctor.
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
The symptoms are in all probability due to acidity, with GERD and H pylori infection. You will be surprised to know the bacteria responsible for GERD, heart burn, acid reflux etc called Helicobacter Pylori or H pylori can cause hives. Antibiotics given to clear up the bacteria also take care of the hives. Diagnosis is generally by carbon urea breath test.
Treatment is a combination of drugs to reduce the acid and lifestyle changes. You will need to take a combination of medications like a proton pump inhibitor such as omeprazole, lansoprazole or pantoprazole empty stomach in the morning and an antacid gel after meals for complete relief. Possibility of H pylori infection too should be looked into and a combination antibiotic tried.
Life style changes that will help include: Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal. Raise the head end of the bed by pillows to 30 degrees. Go to bed at least 2 hours after food. Maybe these tips will help you.
I would strongly recommend you to see a gastroenterologist (a specialist who looks after the diseases of our digestive system).
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
