hi, ma'am... high fibrinogen level and increased inflammatory levels( i presume you mean CRP levels)... can be seen in the METABOLIC SYNDROME... which predisposes to cardiac disease more specifically coronary artery of the features of chronic angioedema is laryngeal swelling , which could give rise to the feeling that you could have recurrent throat infections.... but if you wish to give me a diagnosis combining all your symptoms it would be most similar to something known asa cutaneous necrotizing angiitis... an auto immune disorder... which would respond mostly to steroids.
