What can untreated Allergies do to you?

My Kaiser allergy DR. doesn't know anything about allergies.

I've been going to her for the last 6 months.

Next monday I get a CT scan of my head to see is I have a sinus infection.

I'm having all sorts of bad things happen to my body.

I have Brain fog, bad skin, eye floater, etc etc etc.

But now i'm having yeast problems? my tongue is all white. now I have jock itch, and athletes foot????

I have allergies to thing I work around, but I never really knew it, I never had the runny nose, or itchy eyes, I just feel light headed 24/7.

My allergy tests were off the charts, I was +4( I guess thats the highest) with Grass, Mold, Dust mites, rag weed. and I had other minor allergies to my pets, and what not.

I guess when ever I Google allergies, it just talks about runny noses, and itchy eye's???? I dont have any of that. and I've had bad allergies for over 10 years untreated.

Have you not tried an antihistamine? Plenty of options OTC - claritin, zyrtec. Are you going to take allergy injections?

Hey there, I went to an allergist a few years ago and was told that I was not allergic to dust, which I did not believe because as soon as I come into contact with dust, it affects me. However, dust continued to plague me.

Last week I had a food allergy test and they also tested me for inhalants and I was allergic to both dust (3) and dust mites (4+) as well as dogs (4++), cats (4++) and some grasses (3s). I start allergy shots next week for dust, dust mites, dogs and cats. I don't have pets but there are some in my building.

My feelings are light-headedness, brian fog, problems sleeping and going into certain malls is just a killer, like I am in another world, disconnected feelings. And when I sneeze, I bring the house down.

Yes, I'm taking a antihistamine once a day, and a nose spray. I start shots next week.



Aarondawg...

Does your brain fog go away? or is it come and go? I feel like this 24/7. My vision is blurry, tons of eye floaters..

Some days more so than before. I just feel spacy when it happens. Also, I needed glasses 2 years ago because the doctor said that I was nearsighted. Not sure if allergies were the culprit.

Good luck with your shots too. We will both get some relief.

Has your allergies also affected your digestive system with post nasal drip and such? Nausea some days?

By the way, my allergy shots will not begin until the week of February 2 because the potion is not ready.

Re: What can untreated Allergies do to you?

I wish SOME doctor would have told me that! I freaked out when I saw my first floater. And I notice now that when I am really foggy, I seem to notice those stupid things more.

Floaters= most annoying things ever. They can also be a clear looking spot, black spot, line, translucent. They pretty much move with your vision, so if you are at a computer all day, ugh... its so annoying!

MRT, I thinking that anytime something is flowing down your throat into your stomach, it affects it. I will keep you informed ask that you do the same.

Congratulations! I started my shots yesterday and dreaded the pain; however, I felt almost nothing in both arms. I was stoked! Round 2 is tomorrow; hence, Monday and Wednesday of each week.

Let me know how yours go next week.
