Hello- I'm getting so frustrated and the doctors can't seem to figure out what is wrong with me so I'm hoping for some other ideas.

My symptoms:
-swelling of chest, shoulders, arm pits, neck, face along with horrible pain
-shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing
-difficulty swallowing food due to swelling and breathing trouble
-low red blood cell count
-high C-reactive protein (CRP) test
-breathing capacity test shows I have asthma but the Albuterol inhaler doesn't help
-20mg of prednisone helped with the pain for 2 days but I am back to the same pain and swelling
-600mg Ibuprofen doesn't take the swelling away
-I have received a steroid allergy shot and have tried Benadryl

Negative tests:
-infection
-arthritis
-diabetes
-Lupus

Next, my MD wants to send me in for a Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy. I wake up with my eyes swollen shut and I haven't see my neck or collar bones in a month. Please help!
