Hives and RA
I have been dx with RA for about 8 years and have been on Enbrel for about 7 years. All in all, it has not been bad, a few aches and pains, and feeling tired after activity, but survivable.
A few weeks ago, I developed hives all over me. It is strange because I have never been allergic to anything, but now after speaking and hearing from others, RA may be the culprit. I am wondering if it is the RA messing with my immune system or is the Enbrel the one messing with my immune system. Enbrel does weaken the immune system. Anyway, Zyrtec was recommended by my GP and my Allergist, and it seems to work, the problem is, I have no idea what the allergen is.
Right now, what RA tips would most be helpful for you?
