    Hopefully your doctor is aware of your symptoms.

    Even if other has your experience, their reason or cause is not necessarily your reason or cause.
    Also, your doctor may prescribe entirely different treatment.

    Please talk with your doctor

    Did your Doctor diagnose the hives? Spinal surgery can sometimes bring out Shingles, if you have ever had the Chicken Pox. You may want to run this by your doctor. There are treatments for it.
  • Suggest you see you doctor and get referred to a dermatologist. There are some conditions that look and feel like hives but are not. The usual trigger that it might be something else is that the "hives" don't clear up with antihistamines.

    I have a rare disease called "Sweet's Syndrome". When it comes up it looks like hives.
