In Reply to: Allergy shots. Do they work?. posted by Susan on April 06, 2000 at 15:00:47:
I have been getting allergy shots now for about 4 years (I did stop getting them though when I got pregnant with my son). I was suffering terribly in the beginning. It got to the point that I didn't care what I had to do to feel better. I hated getting needles but like I said..I would do anything I had to do. So now, I have been getting needles (3 a week..one in one arm and 2 in the other)....but I do feel ALOT better. I still get nasal congestion and itchy eyes and sometimes my eyes swell alot. But I am much better than I was 4 to 5 yrs ago. I am a PRO at getting needles now!! LOL They don't even hurt. (well maybe a pinch....:) But it's definately worth it! Good Luck and hope you get relief soon!
