My family is so tired an also worried what is going on. Thank goodness found this forum. I feel so alone an isolated even tho I'm not.
I remember my daughter telling me that if you ate something that contained the oil you would have to wash your mouth off before you could kiss him even he was that sensitive. But the good news is he outgrew it. Bad news is now he has an immune problem and is being home schooled due to so much illnesses in the winter in large classrooms. He gets his interaction with other kids at church where it is smaller groups his age.
Xanax is more of a short-term treatment drug, and is not meant for long term correction of anxiety/panic disorder. It is usually given as a temporarly relief along with SSRI's such as Paxil and Zoloft until the SSRI gets a chance to settle in. Do not rely on Xanax to be your long term treatment drug. Alls it does is induce your GABA (stuff that calms the brain down). SSRI's actually restore balance to imbalanced nerve cells, which contribute to anxiety/panic disorder.
To seek a referral you might ask the local MS Clinic or other clinics like Diabetes clinics might also know of someone who can get someone over the fear of self injecting. The EpiPen is an automatic injector. You can't even actuate that? In the interim you need to have something like Medic Alert who could not only notify the paramedics, but could possibly notify someone around you who could come to your aid.
There are many proven causes of urticaria, but the cause of a large percentage of episodes of urticaria is never found. It is unclear what is meant by, "I can see my allergy level is still very high" but whether that is skin allergy, asthma or allergic inflammation of the nose and/or sinuses, the first line treatment or preventative would not be Medrol, but rather antihistamines and/or inhaled steroids.
I hope the changes you're making will help your pain and keep things going well for you. Keep us posted on all your changes...curious to see how they work out. Good luck!
She is definitely allergic to grains, but if there is something that smells really good to her that is loaded with grains, she wants it. And, she will try to take it. She isn't normally like this with foods she isn't allergic to. If I'm eating meat, which she doesn't seem to have any allergies to that I don't have, she behaves herself quite nicely. She might beg, but she begs politely instead of trying to take something.
This time he decided to refer me to an ENT for an ultrasound. My appointment was today, and I am feeling a lot more confident after speaking with the doctor. He spent an hour talking with me and consulting with another doctor on my case. It was so wonderful to finally have someone talk to me about all of my symptoms and take the time to get a second opinion. He was shocked that my doctor started (and still has) me on such a low dose of Levothyroxine (75 mcg).
Make sure that everyone who cares for your child is aware of them, and the symptoms of an allergic reaction. The most important thing to do is to read the packaging of everything, including foods you have been eating. We often find that manufacturers either change their processes or because of new legislation disclose the possibility of nut contamination, making old favorite foods no-nos.
She has an appointment fore the middle of Sept. She is currently in Portugal and is due back this week. I am anxious to see if she's had any episodes the past 2 weeks she's been gone. Hopefully it can help narrow things down.
I am not going to get into very detailed facts on how severe it is cause I can go on forever.. But he had to apply for SSI Disability cause he CAN NOT work because of it. What I am wondering, is there anyone else out there who has it as severe as he does? Are you on disability because of it? His hearing is finally coming up after 2 yrs of being denied (and if you know about disability you know the process is long).
I do think this was a good switch for me. My fuzzy mental state is much less fuzzy again, thankfully. Take care....Oh, sorry about the double posting on my previous entry. First time for me...sorry.
Good Morning Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 22 ... (wow) We're really happy to see you and welcome all. Snuggle down by the fire Buddies, it's gonna be a wicked ride ....
So happy that you found us here. When I started journaling a long time ago, I could barely find anyone to help me. Not that I am happy that there's so many of us. But you know what I mean. It is easier if you have friends. Make yourself Comfy!
When I went camping or traveled, the quickest route to the nearest hospital was always mapped out ahead of time. I also had an extra cell phone battery, aspirin, and an EpiPen packed neatly inside the defibrillator case......just in case... I carried 2 kinds of tranquilizers on me at all times, they were a constant companion, another safety net, so to speak. Xanax for quick relief and short duration, and Valium for long action...for those really bad days. You know the kind...
He prescribed an EpiPen, a device that administers an emergency epinephrine injection, which he told Newell to carry at all times. Then he handed him an order for a blood test. In the event of another attack, he told Newell, doctors should test his blood for levels of serum tryptase within three hours. An elevated reading would indicate true anaphylaxis, not just anxiety. Newell didn't have to wait long.
on top of that nobody can give you an answer how fast you will progress. Best chances for that is if you know exactly when you got infected and than do biopsy. With that information doctors will attmpt to give you prognosis but it is no garantee either. all have their accuracy problem. How many years do you estimate you would like to wait ? how did you get F2 ?
After I was stabilized they sent me home with an RX for an EpiPen. But 4 hours later I was back in the ER with a second reaction to that bee sting that was just as bad as the first one. This time they kept me for about 8 hours just to make sure I didn't have yet another episode. You can just imagine the nightmare it was with my insurance company when the hospital billed them for 2 ER visits on the same day for the same thing.

My bracelet is fairly plain, but it does the job, so I don't care if it is not fancy. It's good enough for what I want it for . Well, I guess that is all for now. Hopefully, when you get your appointment with the allergy clinic, the allergist will be able to provide you with some answers. I myself used to have allergy shots at my doctor for awhile until I realized they really were not working and that the allergy shots were expensive.
ask your doctors about this for brief relief. i feel for you. it is an extremely depressing illness to have and very misunderstood.
It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it. The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after.
Benadryl is good but might make you drowsy. Or you can take Zyrtec, which is good for 24 hours. Both are over-the-counter. You could also ask your doctor to prescribe a rescue inhaler. These are usually albuterol. I always keep liquid Benadryl in the house because, although very rarely now, I eat something that causes an allergic reaction. I take a sip of it to keep my throat from swelling up, and then take a full dose.
I would definetly ask for an Epipen and call EMS not drive youself to the hospital if things get out of control. Sending good thoughts and best wishes for a good outcome to the testing! Hugs!!!
Allergists normally test for the antibodies if a patient has hives and no cause can be identified. The presence of the anitbodies and an elevated TSH suggest Hashimoto's thyroiditis which is an autoimmune disorder. I'm not a physician but I believe the hives are more than likely from the autoimmune process rather than an allergic response from the Synthroid.
If the allergist is also concerned about lip and tongue swelling, he/she may want to prescribe what is called an EpiPen® (epinephrine) Auto-Injector, a form of adrenaline that could be life-saving. That your hives tend to occur primarily at night again raises the possibility of "bed-bugs", too small to be seen with the naked eye.
Hi, Thanks for keeping me posted. Cheer up. You now have EpiPen, so help is at hand if at all an allergic reaction starts. So what I am trying to say is that your doctor has ensured that you are safe. That’s a positive feeling. Adult RAST Test Panel is a really extensive test to detect the allergen. Take a look: http://apcgonline.com/forms_doctors/RAST_Test_Adult_Panel.pdf Soon you will know what caused the allergic reaction. Until the results come in, you have EpiPen with you.
The reason I am asking this is because of a basic problem I have with giving myself an injection. I am very allergic to bee stings and am suppose to always have an injection within a very short amount of time or I could easily die. Twice since I found out that I am that allergic to bee stings I have been stung. Both times (the first with standard needle and syring, second with epipen) I could not inject myself despite the fact that I could die any minute. So are they all injections?
A sick person can place a huge burden on a family therefore is it not selfish to live? That all sounds messed up. Is a smoker selfish for dying of lung cancer? An alcoholic from a bad liver? I haven't heard of people choosing to have bpd or depression, etc. These are medical conditions. If someone fails to take heart medication and dies, is that selfish? Or forgets to take their epipen out and has an allergic reaction to something and dies? ??
and our allergist said that the rule is if and only if you have a family hx of food allergy you need to wait until they are 1 for milk,2 for eggs and 3 for PB and shellfish and otherwise 1 is fine for everything and you can eat it during PG. All the recommendations now are just theories and as food allergies continue to rise they are even studying introducing those foods early (like in babies) to see if that would possible decrease allergies.
