does anyone else herehave hives either vascular or just the regular hives as a symptom of their cfs? I have been told by my derm and pcp that it can cause strange things to happen, but gees louise this is crazy! I've got hive from head to toe the vascular ones are painful and leave a bruse when they go away, and the regular hive is itchy. I also have times when my mouth and lips swell.I was on prednisone for several months and other than the weight gain of 20something pounds I felt good. Now I'm off the prednisone and I feel crapy. has anyone ever done this or am I the only freak in the bunch?
