How long can a chronic urticaria last? Apparentely it is related with hashimoto thyroiditis. Any idea? Its been 1year of hives and angioedemas.

Can be a long time. The association with hashimoto's thyroiditis is generally just thought to be that people who make antibodies to one thing inappropriately (thyroid) are more likely to make antibodies to other things inappropriately (mast cell receptors which can be a cause for urticaria). Most chronic urticarias last 2 weeks to 2 months, but 10-20% can last more than 2 years.

Start somewhere. Hi, Thank you for your question. Start treatment for everything including Hashimotos, Vitamin D deficiency and hopefully those will improve your fatigue.

I've been suffering with chronic idiopathic urticaria & Angioedema for 6 months now. I still need 1/2 a tablet of 25 mg every 48 hrs. Want to cure it.

Urticaria/angioedema. the chronic idiopathic type (if no cause is found) can last much longer, and resolves on its own, and nobody can predict when exactly will it resolve, most important is symptom control. You mentioned half a tablet of the 25 mg every 48 hours!! of which drug? if it is an antihistaminic of any kind,that's a minimal dose and probably you won't need more,if it is a steroid, better taper it, C ur MD.

22yr female. Experience the following symptoms: angioedema, chronic urticaria, anaphylaxis, bone/muscle pain etc, is this systemic mastocytosis?

Not sure. Symptoms like you describe can be found in serious rheumatologic conditions, require laboratory testing and biopsy, and serious medical consideration. Get moving on seeking expert medical opinion now. If you have had major weight loss, or weakness (difficulty walking) do not accept delay in the appointment. Read more...
Serum tryptase level. You're certainly describing an entity that sounds histamine mediated but of course can be due to other causes and mediators. Does she have urticaria pigmentosa? Have you done a serum tryptase level? To my knowledge the one definitive diagnostic is a bone marrow bx. The other lab i look at to asses a histamine mediated process is anti high affinityfc epsilon receptor antibodies. Any meds? Read more...

If you have hashimoto thyroiditis will it mess with the results of a fna or blood work?

No. We can spot both the hashimoto's and whatever else may be going on in the thyroid at the same time on the fna. Same for the labs. Hoping things turn out for you and glad you're taking a proactive approach to your health. Read more...
Unlikely. I am not sure what you mean by mess with the results, but hashimoto's is the most common cause for hypothyroidism in the us. It will not affect test results, other than thyroid levels (low thyroid). Fna can show some abnormalities, such as lymphocytes, hurthle cells, sometimes some atypia, but most of the time, one can tell malignancy when present. Read more...
