Cold urticaria, constipation, basal thumb pain on PALEO 3 years

Been on a stict PALEO diet for over 3 years. A year and a half into my new PALEO lifestyle my hands and feet started to feel frozen cold all the time. Eventually I developed and was diagnosed with Cold Urticaria, where I develop itchy red hyves when I'm in a cold environment. I'm also plauged with severe constipation. I can only have a BM when I go jogging or take Magnesium. Otherwise I'll not have a BM for a week. Lately I get intense pain at the base of my thumb. 

I eat strict PALEO. One week out of the month I'll do a strict FODMAP diet. I also eat kimchee and natto two times a week.

Does anyone have any ideas for a cure?

I don't have an answer, other than the thought that you might be having an allergic reaction to something. Have you gotten any better since posting?

As the climate is getting warmer, my symptoms have calmed down a bit. I still get itchy red blisters after a workout, being in a refrigirated section of the gocery store, extended time in a air conditioned room, or handling frozen foods for a long time. I'm still refusing to take any antihistamines since I'm against taking drugs of any kind. For the last week my nose has been running along with a productive cough. Feels like an allergy. The pollen count has been very heavy this year. This is odd, since I have gone PALEO my pollen allergy has dissapeared. Could I be reverting back to my old self? Is PALEO not working for me any more?
