I've posted before about my symptoms...lightheadedness, sinus pressure, ear pressure, post-nasal drip sore throat...but another one I wonder about is that I often feel flushed - I mean, my face feels hot, as if I am getting a fever. When I take my temp when I'm feeling that way, it's about 99, which is high for me. Can this be due to the allergies? I had a CT of my sinuses done, and it showed sinus inflammation, presumably due to the allergies, but no infection. I know that at least one person here (I think it was Vicki?) told me that she had a similar symptom, but was wondering whether other people do, too, and why allergies would cause that. Is it secondary to the inflammation?
Thanks for any input. Sometimes I worry that something more is wrong with me. I am going to see an allergist next week, so I'm hoping that will help, too.
