Urticaria

I visited Dr Yu for long term urticaria. For over ten years I’d taken a daily antihistamine to prevent my body coming out in welts from simply walking a short distance. It seemed to happen when I generated my own body heat, rather than being in the sun or a hot environment. I also had random sharp nerve pain in various parts of my body, but mainly the armpit area. As I approached the menopause I seemed to be getting more minor ailments so decided to seek help. After one session of acupuncture and a week of herbs I cut my daily dose of antihistamine to two/week. After two weeks I stopped them completely. I attended a few more times and Dr Yu had cured me. It has now been over two years since I attended and I’ve never had to take antihistamine again. My urticaria has never recurred and I no longer have the random nerve pain. It’s hard to describe but I feel like I had some kind of ‘blockage’ which has now been moved on. I’ve also lost over a stone in weight since then. It could be coincidence but I’ve been consistently the same large size 12 for 30 years, and now I’m a small size 10?
