Allergies and me

Common Questions and Answers about Allergies and me


Avatar f tn Hello, Eczema is not always caused by allergies. Eczema is often caused by allergies to common natural inhalants and intolerance to some foods.Sometimes it is an overactive response by the body's immune system to a bacterium that normally lives on the skin or an irritant.However , eczema is commonly found in families with a history of other allergies or asthma. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Im 10weeks and I've always had allergies throughout the year. Sneezing and runny nose, but since being pregnant I feel like ive just been sneezing, coughing and having a runny nose all the time. I know colds are common but it makes my sickness worse and I feel so run down and worry about my baby. Is anyone else like this?
Avatar n tn i definitely see a correlation for me between more PVCs and allergies. I suffer from indoor and outdoor (i think) allergies, although nothing terrible. i'm prone to post nasal drip mostly, but i notice that i've been having both lately, more PVCs and more post nasal drip.
Avatar f tn I am 9wks 5 days my allergies are killing me. Which medication is considered safe?
Avatar n tn The usually treatment to get me out of this, is a vitamin/steroid shot the doctor gives me, antibotics, and 10 day treatment of steroids to get me relief. Have you found anything that works besides prescription drugs? Any help is welcome. Thank you.
681148 tn?1437661591 It seems like Akira has seasonal allergies and dust allergies in addition to her food allergies. Because I really don't want to give her long term steroids, I decided to only give her the 1/4 tablet of Zyrtec that the vet told me to give her before. I try to wait 'til I just have to give it to her, because I know that people can build up a tolerance to antihistamines, so I figure that animals can, too.
Avatar m tn My doctor gave me a low dose prescription for Xanax to take when they really bother me, and it does help a lot. The only problem is that it makes me feel tired so I drink a strong cup of coffee with it. Even the caffeine does not bother my PVCs if I have taken the Xanax. For a cold, I take Nyquil which also seem to give me some relief. I often wonder if PVCs are not somehow connected to allergies of some kind. I don't's mystery to everyone I guess.
Avatar n tn It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn ve only had one high risk behavior in my life and that was about 9 months ago when a condom broke on me. THe girl said she is 100 percent sure she has nothing but that is not really enough assurance for me.
Avatar n tn After being treated by a gastroenterologist, who did many tests, she informed me that I was not celiac. However, this month I had allergy tests and the doctor told me that I was allergic to gluten. This makes no sense to me as if I am not celica, how can I be allergic to gluten products.
Avatar f tn My Dr told me I can continue to take my allegra. And im now 24 weeks and my little man is just fine.
1606324 tn?1298293871 Is it possible that allergies could have you feeling so badly and out of sorts that it has you feeling anxious? or that it can be mistaken, your feelings, as anxiety? That your body is just so very uncomfortable that you never feel right. My doctor is saying that I probably am experiencing atypical migraines.
Avatar f tn I have had allergies for as long as I can remember, and anxiety and panic since I was in middle school. Here lately, my allergies have been crazy bad, and it has caused my anxiety to go through the roof. Today I am doing with post nasal drip with throwing up. I was just looking to see if anyone here can relate to allergies causing your anxiety to skyrocket.
Avatar n tn I also have Dermagraphism, some days it doesnt appear and then somedays it is there again, I have diagnosed myself, also with Chronic Urticaria, I started to get this after Dental work in Mid May, I am trying to find out what I am allergic to, I have been the Hydroxyzine route and it makes me sick also they advised me to take Steroids which I am not going to do, do you get it in your head? I would be glad of any feedback from a fellow sufferer and any ways you have helped your self.
483397 tn?1208458504 I do have PVC's and allergies. Every year May and June I have PVC's, Making me feel light headed and Short of Breath at times.I hate the feeling of PVC's. I do not take allergy medication until I can't take it any more. I do take a beta Blocker 2 times a day. I am also a nurse so I know not to take any antihistimines because of the PVC's and PACs Mine is usually triggered by fire ant bites. Knowing this I try to avoid them but this year I have had a couple of bites.
Avatar n tn I tried taking him off cold turkey for two days and he just flipped out. he was in the Principals office those two days, and she threatened me that if I don't put him back on the meds that she will have to suspend him. I could not beleive it. He is not a violent child. He has problems witht he other kids pushing, hitting and teasing him so he reacts. I want to take him off but there is only 10 more weeks of school left.
Avatar m tn I have asthma everyday and I have family leave from work so that im able to come home when my symptoms are severe.Im being cared for by a pulmonary specialist and he has had me on every imaginable drug for asthma including Zolair,which is injected once a month. I really dont get any relief from all my treatments and now I highly suspect that this was all caused by the Titanium screws in my body. I wonder if this has happened to anyone else?
Avatar f tn In the year 2000 I had a complete hysterectomy after malignant cells were found in a cyst on one of my ovaries. I never had to have chemotherapy. I wanted to address your post, though, because even though I've known for years that some chemicals (perfumes, spray cleaners, etc., ) bothered me (headaches, fatigue, sometimes a feeling that something is stuck in my throat requiring me to use two sprays from an inhaler) I got worse after my hysterectomy.
865758 tn?1285952904 My ears also itch along with pressure and ringing in my ears. I went to my PCP yesterday and now she told me I have fluid in my ears from allergies. She suggested Mucinex so I guess I will give that a try while I wait for the allergy shots to do something. It is very annoying and interfers with my everday life as well increases anxiety symptoms!!
Avatar f tn I have been having these problems for about 7 months now and all the doctor will tell me is I have anxiety and allergies, but the Nasonex hasn't helped, and even with some anxiety issues this doesn't explain the burping and mucus. Thank you so much again for your help, I really appreciate it. Hope to hear from you soon!
Avatar f tn I've stopped taking Reactine for my dust and seasonal allergies, since I discovered I'm pregnant. And while I can suffer a congested nose for nine months, it won't make the experience very nice.... Can I take an allergy pill? And if so, which ones are safe while pregnant? Will rinsing with a nasal rinse work?
231441 tn?1333892766 Lately I have been having frequent violent sneezing (many times a day), with intermittent running nose and itchy face and trunk. The sneezing and running nose also wake me in the middle of the night, and I have to keep blowing my nose for a while before it settles and I can sleep again. I haven't yet been able to identify clear cause or food trigger (other than peanuts, which recently have started to clearly cause an itch and burning/flushing reaction).
2030686 tn?1351688548 Treatment really made all my allergies much worse, and 8 months post tx, my body is still overreacting, in my opinion.
Avatar f tn Mine too! I'm in Texas and the weather is awful. Rain/wind then burning hot. Everthing dies and then reblooms....
