In Reply to: Does anyone else get these symptoms? Tell me I am not crazy! posted by Ava on March 18, 2000 at 09:28:08:
: I feel drained of all my energy. I go to bed so worn out I am honestly dizzy. My vision is cloudy and foggy sometimes too. I itch from head to toe and will scratch until I nearly bleed. My head feels full and my ears feel plugged up. Also the crown on my head feels like it is burning as well. It will come and go. I have very sensitive skin too. If I do ok with a product for a little while then I stick with it only to develop a reaction later on down the road.
: I am still avoiding going outdoors as much as possible. Every night on tv during the weather segment on the news they post the mold and pollen counts and for a week they have both been extremely high.
: I have tried anti itch stuff. No relief. My MD gave me Allegra D. Didn't help. I have tried Zyrtec and it didn't help either. Clairitin used to work for awhile but not anymore.
: Does anyone else experience these symptoms? What else can I try? I am slowly going broke going to my doc and losing my patience. Thanks!
No you are not crazy and you definitely are not alone. I am going through allergy testing right now, did it 3 yrs. ago but took my self off the shots..big mistake, and it's unreal what there is out there that can make you feel like you are described. E.g. i passed out when they tested me for dust mites. You may want to get this done and start taking the shots. I'm going to do the food ones also.
