: 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!
I have experienced these kinds of symptoms for a long time. For starters, Stop eating sugar. Forget the long hot showers, take short cool baths with baking soda. Let your skin dry before you start rubbing anything on it. Try slapping instead of scratching. Go to a big book store and find a good book on Holistic therapies for allergy suffers. There you should find lots of helpful things like "nasal irrigation" and tips for figuring out what is causing this Have you looked into yeast overgrowth?
