I think we have figured out what is causing the hives. You're going to love this....it's so ironic in a way. Apparently, it's the HEAT. If I lived someplace else, this would be easily remedied. But, no. I live in Oklahoma and we are riding a ten day heat wave projected to end on Friday, hopefully. At that point, we should drop from triple digits to around 90. Lucky for me! (I'm being a little sarcastic)
I am on a methylprednisolone pack (cortizone pack), but it doesn't seem to be doing much. I woke up this morning and it feels like my legs are on fire. I was using my laptop accordingly which caused my stomach and the tops of my legs to erupt in fresh patches of hives. And, today, I noticed that I have a patch spreading across my throat. Lovely. Just lovely.
So, needless to say, we are staying indoors for the time being. So much for my running. That has been tossed to the wayside until things calm down. And, so much for little things like sleeping under the covers or using my laptop for more than ten minutes at a time.
And before anyone asks, some cheese with this whine would be awesome. Thanks for asking. :)
