I don't know what to think. Dr. started me on Bioidentical last may. Then I had a bone scan in July. GP doctor wanted me to take actenol, I didn't like the side affects. OB doctor said no. Instead has me taking Osteoguard. Lots of vitamins and he says it is better than Actenol or others in that class. For the past month I have been breaking out in hives. It is driving me crazy. All over. Big welts. Sometimes I scratch myself so much I am bleeding. Then when the welts go away, I have these open sores from scratching. This has happened in the past. Only worse. About 15 or 16 years ago (before difficult child), I would break out whenever. Then it moved to my mouth. My tongue would swell up and I would lose my voice and a trip to ER. Shot of ephinefrine did the trick. It got so bad at that time my entire body was covered. Started slow, like now. Then I tried blaming it on vitamins, since it was the only thing that changed. So I quit. Doctors told me I cannot be allergic to vitamins. What about the fillers? I have an epi pen, very old though. Went to an allergist. Never found out what it is. I was up in Green Bay this past weekend at my sisters and I broke out. She totally freaked out when I showed her all my welts. I have been living on benadryl. I don't know what to do. Will that not work someday? I am in bedroom slippers here at work because I scratched open the top of my feet. It is SO uncomfortable. I have to run to the restroom to itch. Could it be nerves that I don't know about? My job is up in the air and looks as if it will be outsourced. That has me worried because I pay the bills. I don't feel overwhelmed as in the past. I did change my diet. Due to cholesterol. No eating fast food. No chips or ice cream. Cut out soda(coke). I use to drink 4 - 6 cans a day. Now it is water. Still drinking coffee though. Could it be caffeine? The diet change, the vitamins, the job...all about the same time. Oh yeah, school started then too. Help...Any advice for the itchies?
