Allergy and lightheaded

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy and lightheaded

allergies

CT (for headaches) came back clear (although I couldn't get the contrast done due to an allergy). Any ideas of what it could be? I love driving, visiting family and I need a car for my job. It's wrecking my independence!!! In case it helps, I have history of headaches, migraines and a couple of concussions/whiplash from 10-15 years ago. Around the time the 'attacks' started I had a CT (for headaches) that came back clear (although I couldn't get the contrast done due to an allergy).
You have really got to climb all over this sinus thing. You really should be taking some allergy drugs, and an ear nose throat ENT should perhaps clean out your sinuses, just whatever it takes to make all that nose stuff stop. In the meantime, you may be a little anemic on account of your body is constantly fighting the infection in your sinuses, and that also can make you feel faint, so be sure to get enough protein in your diet.
I was diagnosed with allergies to tree molds and house dust. I was feeling light-headed, very fatigued, and had a slight cramping in my upper abdomen. Didn't have too much of the classic allergy symptoms of itchy eyes, sneezing, etc. Even taking Allegra as I have been for the last 10 years I still sometimes get a weird light-headedness, tired feeling in my head which borders on dizziness. Hope that helps...
And my difficulty breathing isn't bad to where I think i need an oxygen tank, but it feels harder than usual to breathe and doesn't seem normal, and is kinda scary. I'm only 18 and I just moved from California to Idaho, and possibly the elevation may have something to do with it, I'm not sure. Is this something I should be worried about? Or should I just let it play out and hope that it goes away?
Symptoms are severe abdominal pain, dizzy, lightheaded, brain fog, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, weakness in legs and knees. At first I eliminated dairy and that seemed to help. Next came gluten, sugar and nightshades. Today for lunch I had grilled chicken, gluten free pasta with tomato sauce and spinich salad. About an hour later I was dizzy, confused, lightheaded, mouth sores and my legs really hurt.
But really it's just been the same old dizzy and lightheaded feeling all this time (with an occasional symptom here and there after I drive myself insane by looking online at MS or something and suddenly I think I am experiencing some other symptoms, which I know I am really not). How about you? Any other symptoms? What are you thinking it is? Is it ever better for you, other than when driving??
This nausea is constant now and non stop for the past 3 days. I have pains in my stomach and burning in my throat. I often experience left and middle chest pain and wheezing with the above symptoms. I am tired all the time and have not energy. What can this be please.
As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
It will wane and go away for a period and come back. I have a general lightheaded feeling, and when bending over, washing car, playing with kids, any sudden movements I will sometimes see stars or glitter spots. I feel fine otherwise, just have this floating head feeling. I do have sudden wakeups at night occasionally where I'll be gasping to get my breath and heart to slow down.
If you get rashes and possibly 'brain fog' or bowel habit changes/gas along with the fatigue and lightheadedness, consider getting checked for gluten issues - either a gluten 'allergy' or celiac disease. The symptoms could relate to that. You'd be surprised at just how many people find out in their 40s to 60s that they're intolerant to foods they've eaten all of their lives.
i always had this feeling of sleepy, then dizzy and lightheaded... then theres an instance that i feel that my ears are blocked and dizzy... why do i feel it...? it has something to do with allergy, high blood pressure or what...?
About 3 weeks ago I started to feel lightheaded, sometimes to the point of dizzy, and my just felt tired and out of it. It seems to happen everyday, and from what I can tell it seems to start, or get worse after I eat. I eat light and stick to vegetables and healthy meats. I also started to notice, usually late in the evening a burning sensation in my upper chest, and the urge to burp but alot of the times can't. It seems that passing gas/belching relieves the symptoms.
it felt like a panick attack and I thought i was having a heart attack. went to the emergency room, had stress test and echocardiogram with doppler. Doctor said I was fine, all negative test results. I experienced 3 more dizzy, panick, tightness in the chest episodes so i had a 64 slice ct scan. results showed no calcium/ no blockage but my left ventricle had increased substantially since me my last CT of 2 years ago and my lv ejection fract had gone from 58% to 88% since last ct.
In July of 2007 I developed hives that have become chronic along with the return of my lightheadedness. It has now been 11 months and my lightheadedness and hives are still with me everyday. I feel my best in the morning for about the first hour after getting out of bed. Sometimes my symptoms lessen in the evening, but they are still noticeable. After having blood test the doctors discovered that I'm also moderately Hypercalcemic with a levels at 10.5 - 10.8.
About an hour later I became dizzy and lightheaded, chest pain and every joint in my body hurt and had all kinds of muscle. This lasted 5-6 hours...it was misserable. Over the past 7-8 months I have changed my diet to eliminate gluten as this protein can cause all kinds of inflamation and other problems. Well all of my meals have been gluten free which is why I am so frustrated as to my pain situation.
I also have anxiety and feel lightheaded during the spring and fall, but I'm OK the other months. The only thing I can take is Claritan, everything else makes me drowsy. The Claritan doesn't seem to help much. Advil Cold & sinus seems to help the most, but I only take it with food when I feel really bad, because of my stomach. (No more than 3 a week) I'm wondering if it could be the Claritan causing the stomach problem and anxiety or if it's the allergy itself.
My BP this morning is 107/68. I take an over the counter allergy pill everynight the last couple nights I've been taking 2 and it seems now the lighted headedness is only getting up in the morning not every time I look up.
I really get these same reactions from my body. headache, dizziness, lightheaded, the general feeling of body weakness, body malaise and sometimes if it gets really worse i'd get palpitations. it's really not a good feeling. after the great drink comes the great consequence of all the symptoms. I just don't get it why I experience this. and also i only experience this when the drink is cold.
An hour later all the joints in my body hurt like mad, it became difficult to walk, muscles hurt all over, I was dizzy and lightheaded and very scared. I first wrote it off as food poisioning and suffered through the next day and a half. The salad has all the typical ingrediants like, lettuce, spinich, tomatoes, cheese, egg, ham, turkey..etc. I was so frustrated becuase I was careful not to ingest any gluten yet still felt bad.
is pure he**. Sometimes I am able to cope through it and am able to stay, others I get so overheated and lightheaded I need to immediately leave the store. 95% of the time once I leave the situation I feel a lot better. I REALLY would like to find a way to get back to a normal routine, I used to be super super active but now all I want to do is stay at home where I am most comfortable. It is nice to know I am not alone in this.
I'm a 31yr old male non smoker non drinker in Florida, overweight (5'6 215lb), but otherwise no history of disease. I have been lightheaded on and off for the past 6 months. Not dizzy or spinning per say, its more like I have balance issues or fatigue or something. Seems to affect me mostly when I am walking around. Doesn't usually bother me when sitting or driving. But I really notice it when doing things that involve a lot of walking (like shopping).
I can still function in my daily life, but doing anything that requires real thought (including conversation) is very hard sometimes and it's sort of like my mind and body have been numbed and covered in novocain. I feel stoned and like things just aren't really hitting me so to speak. There are times when it's hard to even focus my eye sight on anything, as all my eyes want to do is drift off and blankly stare in to the middle distance while my head shuts.
it didn't work two weeks later it was back and I walk around lightheaded and afraid of sleeping at night that the dizziness will appear. I could be just laying on my back and it feels as the dizziness wants to return, it's like it go's to be dizzy and it stops. has anyone had this problem I think it's more than any inner ear problem, ???????
I have daily nausea and vomit occasionally because of it. Last week, I threw up because of standing up too fast. I'm very lightheaded and occasionally get a numb feeling at the top of my head, my cheeks and my tongue. This morning, I ate toast and drank a half cup of coffee before going to class and I had to leave half way through because I was seeing spots, had severe, PIERCING stomach pain and my heart was RACING.
would last from a few hours to ALL day long. The allergy symptoms went away and I was just left lightheaded 24/7. This has been going on since the 2 week of January. About 3-4 weeks ago I noticed that I had post nasal drip and swallowing tons of mucus and sneeze here and there. I know that detached feeling you were describing...sort of like brain fog, feeling off like your there but really not. Its awful and weird.
about a week ago i was having heartburn problems so i added some baking soda to some water and drank it but the next day i was feeling really lightheaded when i stood up and i was constipated so i took some magnesium citrate and it cleared me all out. i still have the lightheadedness when i stand up and it effects the whole body, almost like my body wants to give out on me.
Anyone experience chest pain, joint pain and become lightheaded after eating peanuts? Why can I eat a McDonalds hamburger and be fine but if I eat something from an upscale restaurant I get dizzy, face swells up, become angry and my entire body hurts.
I can't get the flu shot because I have a systemic reaction within 4-6 hours of vaccination. Angioedema, Wheezing, Respiratory Distress, Lightheaded, Coughing, I am NOT allrgic to eggs. Other allergies are Cat/Dog dander. No seasonal allergies to pollen and no drug allergies. Every piece of info I read, about the flu shot and recommendation states "people who are allergic to eggs or another component in the vaccination shout not get the flu shot". What are the other components?

Hi there. I have seen your post on your alcohol allergy, I have the same thing and I am 21. It also did not effect me at first. Doctors actually dont know the cause of it because our bodies also create small amounts of alcohol...The symtoms I have is flushing in the face, a warm feeling(almost burning) , increased heartrate and abdominal discomfort. I dont know if it is a reaction to sugar (alcohol is a type of sugar)(diabetics) or of an allergy to fungi(antibiotics)(this one I have).
