This is my first posting and I am not sure that I am doing it correctly. I have recently been diagnosised with an autoimmune disease based on labwork and generalized hives. The hives are miserable and I am on multiple antihistimines. I have not read about any autoimmune diesae that is associated with chronic.hives. They cover me daily from head to toe and my quality of life is suffering. It has lasted 10 weeks now and I am desperate. The referring Rheumatologist (from Immunologist) denied me because I was “inappropriate”. What does that mean? I cannot find anyone that cares about me. I went to this site for support and maybe some answers. I am sure that you all are th real expets. Thanks.
