Really need a GP’s opinion on this! Pleeeease! *** PIC ATTACHED ***
I have Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria with Angioedema and it’s quite severe. I’m having a flare up and yesterday morning woke up with these swellings on my forehead. They have now massively reduced in size since then but are still there a little. Is this likely to be connected to the Urticaria/angioedema or would you think it’s unrelated? Please help.
I saw a doctor 2 days ago about my current flare up. I’ve had bloods done etc. I just hoped someone on here may have some medical knowledge and could hopefully reassure me that this can happen with Urticaria/angioedema. Thanks for the bump clara
My partner has hereditary angioedema and I've seen his hands and feet swell up. I showed him your pic and he said he didn't know but to go to a dr. I think it could be related. Do you take anything? Partner is prescribed danazol.
Thanks for the support hulder. I know I should feel positive now that I have the referral but I just feel like giving up. It’s a huge blight on my life and to have been told it’s most likely I’ll always have this and it’ll likely get worse is just extremely depressing. I know there are many people who are worse off so I feel very selfish saying that and I do have loads to be grateful for but I’m just struggling to move forward while it feels like this is dragging me back
There is a difference between always having a condition and always having it but never having had the right treatment.
If you have never been to immunology or dermatology presumably you've just had antihistamines and not much else.
Although I don't know much about it, even the NHS Choices site shows there is more available than that. I know when I had chronic urticaria I got so much out of seeing a specialist that my GP couldn't have done, and mine was way milder than yours.
