Anyone ever heard of this combo or have any suggestions?? Daughter in law has had hives & joint pain (which moves from joint to joint) for 3 months. Has seen several doctors with diagnoses ranging from poison ivy to scabies to psoriasis..etc. Biopsy inconclusive. My son and grandson exhibit no symptoms even though they sleep with her (really sounds like scabies, yeah right!! She was 7 months postpartum when this began. She also has polycystic ovarian disease. When treated with steroids, the symptoms disappear, but return within a day of finishing.

Joint Pain And Hives
I am having the same problem. I have a 5 month old son and just started breaking out in hives. I also have joint pain in my wrists and hands that have come and gone for about a month now. Any clues??

Lupus would be my random, unprofessional guess.

I just googled this combo too since this is my second time with it. I've had migrating joint pain and bad hives as well as general puffiness. I'm seeing my MD soon. I'll let you know what she thinks. I have 3 yr old boy/girl twins. Take care,
Delaney

disappeared
I recently became pregnant again and my hives have disappeared. I had gone to an allergist and no one could figure out why I had them. Now, I believe it is hormonal somehow because they only appeared after I had my first son and now that I am pregnant again, they are gone. I will probably have to start my medication again after the second one is born to control them. Hopefully, they will never come back. We'll see.

I suffered for a few months with hives/migratory joint pain. I have no children and was not pregnant. All results were inconclusive, EXCEPT thyroiditis. Because this is hormonal and hives and joint pain can be linked to a hormone imbalance this may be the cause. You should have your Doctor run thyroid tests just to be sure.

Good luck! I have been hive free for 3 months!!

Hives and joint pain linked to hormones?
I think that it's curious that you say hives and joint pain can be linked to hormone imbalances. Exactly a year ago I had a hormonal IUD (Mirena) inserted and almost immediately started getting hives, triggered by what seemed to be food and definitely alcohol. Joint pain has also been mixed in intermittently, particularly tonight. I saw a dermatologist and she said it could possibly be linked to my IUD but was more likely an allergy. I have always had extreme reactions from hormone birth control, so I am getting it removed this weekend and I hope that my year of hives and not drinking and eating like normal will go away! I will try to re-post as I balance back out hormonally speaking.

My 12 year old daughter is going through the same thing. She has had chronic hives for 12 weeks now, has episodes of fatigue, nausea and loss of appetite. She more recently has been suffering from joint pain. Some so severe that it wakes her up in the middle of the night and she was awake for several hours from the pain. She has had blood work and everything came out normal except for her ESR levels which were slightly elevated. It's extremely frustrating and we wish we could just figure this out.

To all,

Do not just take calcium. The secret is to take calcium and magnesium together as just calcium will deplete all your bones from its calcium.

Next, you are all having pinched and dislocated nerves and those nerves need to be reset to remove the pain. I know as I have been a healer for 14+ years. If you live close to me, I would be able to help you relieve your pain.

Allergy and nerve pain
Well for over a month I am having allergy followed by pains in the wrist nerves if on computers long time or else on my upper arm or near the knee or on the soles of m foot. The GP said it was to do with the hormonal imbalance. He prescribed Vitamin E and I am going to take a course of Neurobion injection. Hope that may help. I can only confirm if I have cure.

If she has PCOS I HIGHLY recommend she get tested for Thyroid issues (TSH, T3, and T4) and thyroid antibodies as well as lupus. PCOS has some links to these autoimmunities. I have PCOS, Lupus, and Graves(autoimmune thyroid). Lupus is known to be triggered by Hormones! If she isn't being seen by an endocrinologist for her PCOS she should try to get a referral to see one. I hope she can find out what is wrong. Sad

I hav had the same symptoms for he last 2 months. Hives and migratory joint pain. There were some days my knees would swell up so much that walking became difficult. After seeing numerous doctors, I was referred to a rheumatologist. When my bloodwork came back, it showed negative ANA but an antibody present that is usually found in lupus or sjorgens. Although I don't have a firm diagnosis, my rheumy believes my symptoms show signs of these. He is calling it a connective tissue disorder. He said the joint pain and gives are caused by this antibody. So please make sure you see a rheumatologist to rule this out. I just started plaquenil and prednisone to clear the hives. Every anti histamine I tried doesn't work. I am hoping the plaquenil works. I am still confused as to what my exact diagnosis is and I am scared what to expect in the future.

Hives, joint pain
I have been experiencing hives in all different forms and severe migrating joint pain as well.. Antihistamines don't seem to help nor ibuprofen.. I've even been seeing large welts about 2 inches in diameter on legs and even my face.. I'm seeing an allergist next week, but am now concerned it is partially hormonal after reading the previous posts. My mom has thyroid cancer and my little brother has an autoimmune disease (HSP) similar to lupus.. Any thoughts or advice? I am 20 years old and have never experienced allergies until now.

Me too!!!
With those same symptoms, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroiditis. My body attacks itself. With Synthroid I kept the symptoms away for 2.5 years. Unfortunately I had to temporarily stop the meds and the hives (idiopathic urticaria or dermographism - I can write on myself) and joint pain have returned. Now I have to go back on because these are worse than the problem that caused me to stop the meds. Please get your thyroid antibodies, T3s, T4s, etc. checked with an endo/ specialist. Lots of luck and God bless!

@Degree79,
Has your daughter in-law been checked for Lymes disease? Also, anemia can cause some of the symptoms you mentioned, as can mononucleosis. I'd suggest seeing a
doctor who specializes in infections diseases.
