: : i have had pretty bad allergies consistantly for about a year now. i never had them before. i can't afford to go to a doctor to get a perscription, and i'm looking for something natural that may help. i tried grapeseed extract, and i'm currently trying MSM. they don't seem to work. i take nasal crom or something like that, and it usually helps, but the past month or so, nothing works! it's like torture. my eyes will water and be all blurry, and my nose runs and i sneeze over and over! sometimes this lasts for an hour, and i cant' function! my boyfriend thinks i have a sinus infection, but i don't get headaches. and my mom thinks i might be allergic to mold and have spores trapped in my sinuses. (i do live in a high mold area for a year and a half now) also, i have been weezing a lot lately, and i was thinking if it is mold it could be down in my lungs? or the fluid is going into my lungs? i know i should see a doctor, but i really can't afford it. is there anything i can do that won't cost too much?
: : thank you for ANY advise!

: The wheezing could be a sign of asthma. I would look for a sliding fee type clinic or call your usual clinic and ask about payment arrangements and get things checked out. You can then decide what course of treatment to try after you get a diagnosis of your problems.
i do have slight asthma- nothing that interferes too much with my life. i was just scared because it said on the nasal crom that it could be a side effect. i am going to start hunting for a good fee monday. saturday i had a HORRIBLE attack. lasted all day and into the night. it can't be normal! thanks. :)
