Hello I’m back! I finally finished my thesis all the while struggling mightily with my EDS!
I recently started reacting again to meds prescribed by a new endocrinologist. I thought I was getting hives, but the Dr. said it was acne and my MD said it was Acne and so I threw a mini fit and demanded a referral to see a dermatologist. Within a minute of looking at my skin the dermatologist said I had dermatographia and suggested histamine blockers. Due to reactions to some meds we settled on Claritin 2 x a day. I was almost speechless and in tears simply because the Dr. never even questioned the fact that I was having reactions. I have been so much better. Unfortunately I am unable to take any of the acid inhibitors due to severe restless leg like pain. I do not have restless leg symptoms unless I am on GERD meds. Amazingly I have not had even 1 incidence of heartburn or gerd since I began the Claritin 2 x a day sometimes I have gone up to 3 x a day. The suspicion is a mast cell issue in my gut. My IBS symptoms have also been relieved. I have gained a few pounds, but attribute that to switching diabetic meds not the Claritin.
Now I can work on my diabetic meds, the parathyroid/ thyroid issues, the low vit d and help for my low energy!
