Q Hi there. After numerous visits to my go I am at a loss of what to do so here I am. About 4 months ago I moved house. About a week after moving in I started getting bad hives all over my body. I was given 2 rounds of prednisone and antihistamines. Hives came back but staTed to stay away. I now have skin dermagraphism and my skin does get itchy at least twice a day in random patches. And if i wash my face or rub my face it goes all blotchy and red. If i lean on any object or something ill get red markings from doing that too.Mainly arms and legs. About a month after my hives dissappear I stared having trouble breathing, tight chest and making weird noises when I breathed.I was diagnosed with asthma and given a be and orange inhaler. My asthma is so bad and getting worse. I have gone through my full blue inhaler in just under 2 weeks. Using it about 8-10 times a day now.and this last week I have a cough that is so bad it's hurting my stomach muscles. I wake up about 2 times a night from my sleep. If I go for a run however i don't need my inhaler at all. I'm a 24 year old female. My doctor was going to put me on emergency list at hospital for a skin test of some sort but she said because of my dermagraphism it wouldon't work? I've missed two days if my course this week due to lack of sleep and about 30 hours attending doctor visits and trying to deal with this all. I also have got joint pain and swelling for the last year in a couple if my fingers and one toe. I don't know if it's related at all. I just don't know what to do any more I'm just sure I know no one should have to deal with this. I'm located in christchurch.
