Thanks, We need to know if Having hives is a risk factor during SI joint infection. Also if recent bladder infection or reaction to muscle relaxants such as valium or flexoral could pose a risk. Reactions incl mouth face swelling and throat constriction.

Side effects or an allergic reaction to medications can produce symptoms of hives, edema/swelling, etc. A bladder infection or SI joint dysfunction would produce a different array of symptoms. I hope this answers your question.
