I have been getting symptoms similar to an allergic reaction: hives on my chest, rapid heart beat, itchy, tight chest and throat.

I thought I was having some sort of allergy to something and took a Benadryl to be on the safe side. I listed off all that I ingestided and nothing was out of the ordinary at all, so I started looking into it.

I don't know exactly how this works but apparently your Lupus body (that's what I call it because it has it's own language and does what it pleases) is tricking you, so-to-speak, into an allergic reaction you aren't really having.

Has anyone experienced this before. Since the Benadryl didn't work, any other ideas?

Itchy and want frustrated
