Are you diagnosed of any medical condition?

I have not been diagnosed w/any condition. No tests, I happen to be out of town on business, - so they gave me prednisone(shot & pills) antihistimine, and a blood pressure med. till I can get back home
it started while I was at home though, before i left on bus. trip
Dear Jacustomer,I am sorry to know about your symptoms.Based on what you mentioned,I will advise that you see a physician who can check your renal function tests,bun and serum creatinine as underlying renal pathology can lead to elevated blood pressure.
I will also advise that you ask your physician to do a rast test to know which allergen is responsible to trigger hives in you.
I will also like to mention that prednisone shot also may elevate your blood pressure
The redness in face and neck can be from high blood pressure or allergic pathology.
At present we need to know which all possible allergens are responsible for your symptoms,which you can get confirmed by getting a rast test.
Feel free to ask further questions if any.
are there other symptoms for renal issues to be looking out for? To my knowledge I've never had any issues w/that. And I dont know what I would be allergic too - never had any issues before
In early renal issue,it mostly presents with high blood pressure,then later it can present with swelling of legs or abdomen.You should also ask the physician to check your complete metabolic panel to rule out adrenal adenoma as a cause of your elevated blood pressure too.
Allergy can start at any age ,when a potential allergen triggers it.
