I started experiencing unexplained hives all over my body - never knowing where from hour to hour - 5 1/2 months ago. I've had every test imaginable to rule out systemic or other causes and no triggers seem to make sense. Antihistamines to not work. Xolair provided no relief after 4 rounds. I had a total thyroidectomy 6 weeks ago to remove a benign mass and was hopeful that would end the hives. It did not. Since then, I have started seeing a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner for accupuncture and cupping. The tea did seem to bring some itching relief in the middle of the night.
And now - one week ago, a lurking mild tug in my right side became acute and within hours my appendix was removed. Not one hive since. I'm so afraid to exhale with relief. Will they return? Does anyone believe their is a connection between a lingering bacterial, appendix infection and/or appendictis and my hives?
