I have had chronic urticaria for nearly 12 months now - well this episode - it started in January 2006 after taking a drug called metformin - or so I thought - i have seen several consultants, been in and out of hospital and today have been told it could be delayed pressure urticaria. I am on telfast in the morning and zyzal in the evening - i have tried ciclosporin which didnt work at all. When I have a bad attack - (which means worse than usual as i have had it every day since last october with no break) I get shakey, shivery as my body is trying to cope with the heat from all the rashes. When i get excited, stressed, not enough sleep, my period, ill, exercise, hot, alcohol it gets worse so most of the time then!!!! i have now been suggested to use sulphasalazine - has anyone else tried this? I am taking steroids but 8 x 5 mg for 3 days only to try and get it under control - i have just been in the car for 7 hours to get to my specialist appointment and that has made it go like mad!!!! - has anyone heard of any connections with stomach problems and urticaria - I seem to get bad diarrahoa when i have a bad attack and it all started when i had a sickness and diarrahoa bug in December 2006. Does anyone have a link with periods? I have a lot of periods and have endometriosis and polycystic ovaries and wondered if anyone had the same and had urticaria - people with this terrible disease need to keep finding out more information as I do believe there is something that causes it - whoever finds it could become a millionaire! there must be more to life than taking drugs which in the long run will cause something else!!!! Any suggestions or comments welcome - all the best to all you itchy and scratchies out thereXXX
