I had a positive test called Anti IgE Receptor AB test. In a nutshell my body's receptors are attacking themselves.
I am on Zyrtec and Zantac daily which are Histamine blockers and can be purchased over the counter. It has settled my system down and I have not had an allergic in over 2 months. Wonderful !! I also had skin testing and then RAST blood testing. I am showing highly allergic to Beef...so I am avoiding beef.
I am being worked up for Lupus and hopefully that is not the case.
Hope that helps........ Oleander
Oleander - I was told we can't get diagnosed by antibody tests such as lupus, Valley Fever, Tuburculosis, etc because we don't make antibodies. I truly believe I have Lupus and can't get a 2nd opinion, shoot I can't even get anyone to see me for that matter.
