"Chronic Spontaneous/Idiopathic Urticaria"
Posted by Jillybilly (as ),
May 2014 I started getting severely itchy palms..I then noticed there were red blotches all over them, they burned and were so so itchy! I ignored it for a few days, didn't have time for it with work, kids etc..and then I noticed there were off shaped welts on my wrists which were also burning and itchy. I went to A&E to get it checked and was told I had Erythema Multiforme,
was given some antihistamines & cream and told to see my GP..3 days later my whole body was covered in these burning, itchy welts and I was very worried! I made an appointment with my GP and he then diagnosed me with Chronic Urticaria, he said it could last anywhere from 6 weeks to 6 years! !
So here I am nearly 2 years later..still having the burning itching welts, had a nervous breakdown and suffer severe depression & anxiety, have lost a job I adored, have no social life and still no cure for this awful debilitating condition! Something has to be done about this and soon!
