Just read that hives can be a sign of RA, i have been having hives now for about 5-6 yrs and could not find out why i had them. They come for no reason, but also for reasons I am allergic to grass it must not touch me. If it does I look like i have been burnt and it spreads to places where it did not touch me. I am unsure if the swellings come and go as they please but glad I took some photos of my ankles at the weekend they were huge, but look a lot better now and not as sore. Has anyone here any experience of hives with RA?
