Angioneurotic Edema

Posted by

I was diagnosed with type 2 hereditary angioneurotic edema fifteen years ago. At that time I was hospitalized so test could be given and medication could be given by IV. I had a severe reaction to the needles, and the IV had to be removed. My specialist told me I was the only type 2 ( 0% C1 ) patient he had ever treated. I have a severe problem with cold weather, I break out in hives from head to toe. If I catch a cold or flu I alsobreak out in hives. Even when I get tired from working I break out in hives. I really had a problem when I had emergency surgery for a diseased gallbladder. I don't know if it is related but since my first severe attack I have not been able to keep my blood pressure down.
I have read numerous books on relaxation and this has helped some. Mainly I have learned to avoid most situations that cause reactions, and take a lot of antihistamines. When I get a severe attack my physician puts me on steroids, but only when absolutely necessary.

Hi,Timmy

While you're waiting for DR Stoll, you can input Angio Neurotic Edema into the search this site at top right corner
of this post.

In addition to the many posts, you might want to read post under Angio Neurotic Edma posted by Cindy 3/2/98 and another
on Dysautonomia Archive posted by CC Pritchett 12/5/98.

Hope this helps as there's a lot of information contained in the archives. Read on SR (skilled relacation) also.

Hi, Timmy.

Listen to Paulette (Thanks, Paulette!)

What kind of SR do you do, how often and how did you substantiate that is was producing the relaxation response? If this were working, you should have had no further problem with in 6-12 months.
