HELP - Does anyone else get Hives from Cold since Developing CRPS

Posted , 2 users are following.

I was diagnosed with CRPS in May of this year after a foot/ankle injury that occurred in March. I have had extreme cold sensitivity since late April and it seems to be getting worse. Besides the sharp needle like pain that occurs when something cold touches my foot/ankle I have now begun to develop hives when I am cold. The hives welt up and the whole area turns red and swollen and gets extremely itchy and because of the Allodynia I can't scratch. It is Absolute Torture.

Has Anyone ever experienced this? Is this normal with CRPS? Since I am still trying to learn to navigate through this diagnoses I am hoping someone can offer some advice.

    i have heard of this . I do itch but don't get hives. I get so bad I wanted to keep slapping my foot to make it go away. of course like you I am unable to touch. your nerves are going crazy in foot. you may need to up your nerve meds. they usually start out low dose. call your doc and ask. when i have a bad flare I take pain meds and keep telling myself to breath slowly and try and calm myself down. anything to distract. there are a lot of support groups out there that give great support and information. I belong to warrior's on Facebook. check it out and also others out there. I am also a newbie to this. I was hurt Jan .was diagnosed june. I am also lost on alot of things. I hope this helps.
