Ok so I posted my sob story yesterday thank you to those who responded.
Coincidentally I started at a new chiropractor today. Unlike a lot of medical professionals he took down my entire history and listened to me (imagine?). It's not that complicated but as we all know doctors often just get to the exact reason you're sitting there and move you along.
He asked if I had low stomach acid. I said not it's high that's why I take prevacid every day for 10 years. He said in reviewing my history he had a hunch that the prevacid had done too much for too long... that my stomach acid was low and that the low stomach acid is causing my hives.
He did a basic baking soda and water stomach acid test.. which revealed excessively low stomach acid levels. OH MY GOD!
When the body's stomach acid is low, it panics and creates high histamines to trigger stomach acid production. The high histamines (if combined with already high histamines like in a low carb diet...) can then cause hives since the levels are so high.
Can you imagine if this one person has solved the hives reason just by actually listening ??????
I emailed my doc asking the best way to wean off the prevacid. I'll keep you all updated.
Has anyone ever heard of this? OR could this be something you should consider as well?
