I have had episodes of extreme facial redness and hives that actually weep on my cheeks for about 6 months now. I have been tested for every allergy possible and they all come back negative. I can be totally fine one minute and then the burning sensation starts and I get bright blood red with ringing in my ears and blurry vision. I take a lot of prednisone and hydroxyzine to knock it down but am tired of eating all that crap. I feel terrible, have gained weight, lost hair and can't sleep well. Had my first zolair shot last Tuesday and woke up last night feeling like I had the flu. I am not sure if I should get the next shot or not but something has to give. I have a job that requires me to speak in front of hundreds of people and boards of directors. I now have panic attacks that I will have a flare up during these and sometimes it happens and I have to swallow a bunch of pills. My flare ups seem to come mostly during the afternoon. I have seen 5 different doctors and spent a ton of money to try and get an answer and they all seem to think its ICU. Any advice or help is much appreciated as I think I am becoming depressed as a result of this. I dontlipe togo out anymore for fear of a flare up.
