I have been battling chronic hives for the past few months now, and nothing seems to help. I've been to a few allergists and bloodwork determined that I have autoimmune urticaria, but all the allergy tests came back negative. I am currently on a mix of Zyrtec/allegra/Prednisone/Vitamin D (my levels were pretty low). The only thing that seems to work is eating a diet low in histamine. I've noticed that when I consume foods high in histamine (anything acidic, chocolate, tomatoes, cinnamon, coffee) that I will usually have a far worse outbreak. The strange thing about my case is that they hives almost ALWAYS come out during my sleep, and it is not uncommon for me to wake up with my body covered in deep rooted hives. I have also had a few bouts of angioedema (mostly to my lips and eyes, although it has happened to my fingers and toes as well). I am just wondering if anyone has had any similar reactions and how they have managed it. ANY HELP OR ADVICE IS WELCOME!
