I am scared of making the hives worse

Well my immunologist put me on leave for 3 weeks in hopes that rest and all these steroids will help calm the hives and swelling. At this point I’m thankful for a flexible job, sick leave accumulated and insurance. I’ve lost about 8 lbs in the last week-basically eating to live bc Im scared of making the hives worse…I’m on 50mg of prednisone until this bout passes .

Pam Ruffier Feel Better Soon!!

Heather Cox Rest, relax, sleep, watch tv, visit with love ones, etc…. and don’t feel guilty about it.

Shatania Clay That’s something I’m going to have to learn to do..not feel guilty… Thank you

Heather Cox Your body needs it. I am so prone to stress and anexity, but I made myself relax and rest and told myself it was needed for my health. And….it actually helped soo much! It’s hard, but there’s nothing wrong with it.

Amy Christmas I’m going through this same thing. Just curious if you have stomach issues. Acid reflux, food allergies, partial blockages?

Shatania Clay I have silent reflux, not true food allergies, but due to the autoimmune hives I’m low salicylate and histamine.

Evelyn Brethour Shatania, you are so blessed. Sounds like you are being well taken care of, and on your way to getting better. Yay!

Shatania Clay Ty, I always Try to think of the positive blessings through the itching, pain, and uncomfortable days and nights. I’ll be staying with my mom for a few days since I’m scared of anaphylaxis.. so Imagine a 40 yr old still sleeping in her mom’s bed.

Sheena Jack rest if you can ,stress is awful ,can emphasise take care xx

Shatania Clay Thank you!
