In Reply to: FEELINGS OF THE FLU FROM ALLERGIES? posted by BRITTANY on July 28, 2000 at 17:12:21:
I can't help in the sense of suggesting anything to make it go away, but I can tell you I have VERY similar flu-like symptoms whenever seasonal allergies flare up. Right now, where I live(PA) it's the height of the goldenrod blossom and I've felt extremely flu-like for days. I get congested,coughb a great deal, sneeze frequently, have runny eyes but also get an extremely nauseated feeling, along with weakness,excruciating feelings of tiredness, achingmuscles,weepy-ness, etc. - I justfeel sick all over! I'm sorry you experience the same, but I have to admit that I'm glad to run into another allergy sufferer who has the same symptoms I do. It can get downright scary. Good luck, and stay in!
: 3 TIMES A WEEK IN THE WINTER I WOULD GET THIS THING WERE I WOULD GET REALLY ITCHY EYES, A SCRATCHY THROAT,
: CHILLS, A RUNNY NOSE, A HOT FEVERISH FEELING INSIDE AND FEEL SOOO TIRED AND WEAK. IT WOULD LAST
: SOMETIMES MORE DAYS THEN OTHERS. THEN I WOULD GET SOME DAYS WERE I WOULD BE CONGESTED WITH GREEN MUCOUS AND ITCHY EYES. WHEN SPRING CAME AROUND I JUST WOULD HAVE DAYS WERE I WOULD BE CONGESTED WITH GREEN MUCOUS AND SLEEP WITH CHILLS, ITCHY EYES AND A STUFFED NISE WITH GREEN MUCOUS. I TO AN ALLERGIST AND GOT A CATSCAN OF MY SINUSES. NO ALLERGIC REACTIONS SHOWED UP
: ON THE SCRATCH TEST SO I WAS TOLD I HAD MINOR ALLERGIES OR WAS ALLERGIC TO SOMETHING ELSE. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE RESPOND TO ME. I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE THAT!!!
