Medical Question

I have had hives for a few days. The hives have cleared, but I find that my legs ache terribly and I feel very tired, have no pep at all. I took Benedryl for a few days but nothing since yesterday. Is there a reason I feel so exhausted? Last week and all time previously, I am a very active person, golfing 5 days a week and going to the gym several days a week. The hives started on a driving trip of 1200 miles, and began with itchy fingers and eventually moved all over my body, even my lips were swollen. They seem to be gone now. Help please. I need my pep back.

Dear Thomas,

 

It would seem that your symptoms, though it would have initially started with hives due an allergic reaction, now seem to have extended to your heart. This is explained by the tightness in your chest and neck. Given your age and history of valvular disease, this is quite likely.

 

I would recommend that you get an ECG as soon as possible, and consult a cardiologist as soon as possible. Tiredness, difficulty in exercising and chest tightness in a person of your age are classical signs of ischemic heart disease.

 

It could also be that Benadryl might be causing some of your symptoms, as it is known to cause severe drowsiness and sleepiness.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further doubts

(attached image - http://oi62.tinypic.com/2ep6ir4.jpg ) 4 days ago my finger was cut a bit (by knife) and I cleaned it with alcohols, but i didnt give it too much attention, and whole day i was washing plates, did home-tiding works and maybe the bacterias(infection) entered? also, in that day, a door knocked on it suddenly... in 1 day, something (i dont know: infection or allergy) developed inside it, and become swell. one of my doctor said, that it was an allergy, and told that i should use salty water and something anti-allergy gel. but it didnt help me. now, the situation is not better. the areas around it became a bit red and more swell. i doubt there may be infection.. what remedies should i get, or what gel is good in this situation? 1) I dont have throbbing feeling there. 2) when my hand is below under heart, pain doesnt increases (actually, pain is not increased, but i feel discomfort and blood pressure ) 3) it's so swollen,that i cant bend, because it is painful.
